As the post-Newtown anti-gun jihad makes obvious, the liberal media and the Democrat Party keep in sync. So does academia:
Students in a political science class at West Liberty University were given an assignment recently to keep a “politics journal” in which they would record their reactions to various articles they had selected.
The instructor at the West Virginia public institution included some possible news sources, such as The Economist, BBC, CNN and The Huffington Post. But the instructor also specified that two sources could not be used. One was The Onion, which the assignment notes “is not news” and “is literally a parody.”
The other: Fox News, the only major media source of information that does not lean aggressively to the left. With the jarring hypocrisy that distinguishes liberals from those who suffer from less severe psychiatric maladies, instructor Stephanie Wolfe justified her ban by declaring that FNC makes her “cringe” because it is “biased.”
Students, like journalists, face a choice between demonstrating unquestioning loyalty to progressive ideology and swimming against an insistent current.
