An emailer writes in:

This item from yesterday’s CHE afternoon update: A textbook by “two well-known conservatives” is found to have “bias” because it makes mild and perfectly reasonable remarks about global warming and school prayer.  And one of those “conservatives,” DiIulio?  He’s a lifelong Democrat, though he did happen to work briefly in the current administration.

The other guy is James Q. Wilson — you know, the JQW of right-wing-hackery fame.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
