Salon quoted the op-ed on December 20. On December 18, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) published a debt collection rule in which it quoted from one article Sovern co-authored, and cited another. On January 5, the Washington Post published an essay by columnist Katrina vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of The Nation, in which she referred to a piece Sovern co-authored with Hofstra Law Professor Norman I.
