AP did a bylined article on the petition which first appeared in the San Jose Mercury News. Many other media outlets throughout the US, some in Canada, and even in India have picked up this article!
Most of the headlines got it right: "Historians irked by C-Span program"; however, in later postings this appears as: "Historians irked by C-Span's plans to air alleged Holocaust denier". Alleged??!
If you do a Google search for "C-Span + Lipstadt" you will see that this matter has been the topic of discussion on many blogs including Little Green Footballs, Solomonia and Blogcritics.org
