Prince asks for Media Blackout, Tulip Time Festival complies

May 1, 2010

According to the Holland Sentinel, Blackwater founder Erick Prince has requested a media blackout for his luncheon address on Wednesday in Holland.

The Tulip Time Festival luncheon has always been open to the media, but Prince requested the blackout mostly likely to avoid further scrutiny by the news media. A spokesperson for the Associated Press still plans on reporting since they bought tickets for the event, an event that has sold out.

It is also reported that a group of Holland residents are planning on protesting Prince’s talk and will be gathering outside of the Hope College Fieldhouse at 10:30am, an hour before the founder of the private mercenary group will speak.
