Protestors took the stage less than five minutes after Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, took the microphone in Roone Arledge Wednesday night, sparking a chaotic brawl involving more than 30 students, other attendees, and guests of the College Republicans.

And in the media orgy that has exploded since Wednesday:

In addition, FOX News (on both the O'Reilly Factor and Hannity & Colmes), ABC, and MSNBC have also jumped on the bandwagon.
