David Horowitz has been providing examples of these "liberal professors" trying to punish students for conservative views for some time. if you search in google, you can find numerous reports that the examples he used didn't really exist and sometimes the "liberal professor" was really a republican. Inside Higher Education is a web-based publication that covers higher education issues from a centrist POV. here's an article that they had recently on Horowitz: <a href="http://www.insidehighered.com/news/2006/01/11/retract">link here</a>.<br><br>a snippet:<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p> But as hearings ended in Philadelphia Tuesday, critics of the Academic Bill of Rights were saying that they had scored key points. David Horowitz, the conservative activist who has led the push for the hearings in Pennsylvania and elsewhere, admitted that he had no evidence to back up two of the stories he has told multiple times to back up his charges that political bias is rampant in higher education.<p><hr></blockquote><p>just because you can find someone (e.g., Horowitz) writing about it online, that doesn't make it so. that's not to say that there aren't professors spewing a liberal ideology . . . but, the fact that the key examples that Horowitz comes up with aren't even true should speak volumes. <br><br>--<br>"I am mindful that diversity is one of the strengths of the country" --president bush on 9/27/05
I'm sorry if I came across as a pompous jerk in that one post, mojo. That wasn't my intention at all, but now that I read it in the cold light of sunset instead of the dark light of midnight or whatever it was, it comes across like pomposity squared. My apologies.<br><br>. . . . . Here's lookin' at [color:red]you</font color=red> kid.

I did not think that at all. But there is one thing you did make me think of from your post. That you are quite likely a very good educator that is passionite about about his profession. Not to come off to wishy washy but I admire that.<br><br>
