Propaganda Has Propagated

A few days ago I linked to a report from ACTA that detailed many of the more egregiously propagandistic course at American colleges. I said it would not surprise me when some would make "claims that the authors are trying to censor college professors."

This in fact has happened. John K. Wilson at InsideHigherEd is arguing that the Ward Churchill committee's findings, in particular their use of the term "misconduct", has opened the door to "a vast new right-wing witch hunt on college campuses that conservatives could easily exploit across the country."

As detailed extensively by PhiBetaCons here and here, Mr. Wilson's arguments are not only unpersuasive, but profoundly dishonest. He is scaremongering.
