Academic Freedom in Time of War

by AirTalk

Several professors nationwide, notably one teaching at Orange Coast College, are being chastised by school administrations for speaking out and airing their opinions regarding the attacks of September 11th and American participation in the war in Afghanistan. Some professors are being criticized for what has been described as anti-Muslim sentiment, while others are being punished for airing views allegedly blaming the United States for the terrorist attacks. Larry Mantle opens the phones to hear from listeners on the subject of free speech during wartime, especially on college campuses.
