Tucked in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains outside of Wheeling West Virginia sits West Liberty University. Founded March 30, 1837, the university has an average enrollment of about 2700, features more than 50 different programs, 30 of which are recognized nationally or have national accreditation. It’s a great choice for education for local residents due to low cost tuition, scholarships, financial aid, and reduced cost for bordering county residents.
Accessible, affordable, accredited education! Cool, right? You ain’t seen nothing yet!
Stephanie Wolfe, a visiting professor of journalism at West Liberty University in West Virginia, banned her students from citing The Onion, (no surprise there). But Professor Wolfe, AKA Professor AWESOME banned her students from also citing Fox “News” saying,
“Please do not subject me to this biased news station. I would almost rather you print off an article from The Onion.”
She’s right about that. There is often more truth to The Onion’s headlines than those of Fox “News.”
After all, Fox lawyers argued it was their first amendment right to report false information. And they WON! They sued to be able to lie, and WON!
Naturally, local idiot TEApublican-types are outraged! OUTRAGED!!!!
As WTOV 9 reported, “Upset students and parents have taken their concerns to local media, like NEWS9’s news partner Dave Bloomquist at WWVA, who shared an email from a concerned parent with us. Parents claim it is unfair to the students to encourage some sources which lean in one direction politically, while discouraging those going in the other direction.”
Fox News’ “direction” is off the cliff of reason– to the pit of lies, insanity and ignorance. To buy Fox News lies, requires the suspension of critical thinking, intellectual honesty and reverence for truth. That’s not a direction any caring college professor should want to see his or her students travel. That’s not a liberal view, or simply a liberal opinion either.
Professor Wolfe, Americans Against the Tea Party would like to thank you for doing the world a favor, not only for educating our young people, but also for keeping the insane, lying propaganda wing of the TEApublican party out of the classroom!
You definitely get a gold star for today!
