The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner is a traditionally conservative media voice in Alaska, however it has publicly defended the testimony of college student and Alaska Youth Environment Action leader Cheryl Lockwood in the face of ignorant ridicule from (unsurprisingly) Rush Limbaugh.

Further, Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski of Alaska has written a letter to the editor about this issue, and Limbaugh’s poor conduct; it is reassuring that the Senators representing this courageous young person do have comments now.
