Riled Up

by John J. Miller

K Lo: What an utter disgrace. The Chronicle of Higher Education’s decision to fire Naomi Schaefer Riley following a controversial post — i.e., controversial among left-wing campus activists — shows that the Chronicle doesn’t believe its own writers should enjoy something akin to basic academic freedom, in which people can speak their minds without fear of professional retribution. Shame, shame, shame.

(Full disclosure: Riley has edited me for the Wall Street Journal and I regard her as a friend.)
