EAST LANSING (AP) - About 200 people gathered outside Michigan State University's commencement ceremonies to protest a speech by columnist George Will over his commentary on sexual assault reporting at colleges.
The Lansing State Journal reports that Will didn't mention the protests during his speech to undergraduates Saturday on the East Lansing campus.
More than a dozen students stood as he spoke and turned their backs to him and several others in the audience did the same or held up newspapers.
