Threats to open inquiry and viewpoint diversity do not know ideological bounds. Today’s episode addresses the times when viewpoint diversity gets hijacked for political gain.
Today’s blog, Constructing Campus Craziness, was written by professor Donald Moynihan in February of 2019, in response to a close friend (and co-author) being targeted and falsely accused for being, well, you know the script: a conservative-loathing, ideologically motivated, radical left-wing professor. Listen in for the full story of Professor Ken Mayer and an exclusive interview with Donald Moynihan. The piece was narrated by Jonathan Todd Ross.
