Wolves in sheep's clothing

I think people are entitled to whatever political views they've concluded are correct. What irks me regarding the MSM is its pretense that it has no political views and that it's engaged in objective reporting. I'd start reading the NY Times again in a minute if it would forthrightly admit that it is a paper aimed at furthering the Democratic party platform. I wouldn't feel as if I and all the other readers are being lied to by something that feeds us news with an agenda, but denies the agenda exists. The same holds true for what's going on at universities. They cling to the ridiculous pretense that they're institutes teaching objective information, free from any biases. Come on, Columbia! Just start admitting that you're a Marxist, anti-Semitic institution. That way, my liberal Jewish friend's child, who is intrigued by the Marxist agenda, might hestitate to apply based on the freely admitted anti-Semitic part. Anyway, apropos of this point, I liked this bit from David Horowitz's most recent article regarding his book exposing college professors:

A principal theme of my book (unmentioned by its critics) is that faculty radicals have transformed entire departments and fields into political parties whose agendas have little or no relation to any activity that could be called scholarly. Thus Women’s Studies are not about an academic inquiry into the nature, history and sociology of women. Instead, Women's Studies is the Party of Feminism on campus. Similarly, Peace Studies is not about a scholarly inquiry into the causes of war and peace. It is the Party of Anti-American, Anti-Military, Sympathy for the Terrorists. And this, by the way, is not a small movement. There are 250 such “Peace Studies” programs on campuses across the country. The one at Ball State is headed by a Professor of the Saxophone; the one at Purdue by a member of the central committee of Angela Davis’s Communist Party. It think this qualifies as “dangerous” and I think the broad public who will read this book is likely to agree.
