College Professor bias goes back well before Fox News, or even cable TV. I can only relate my own experience; I was a freshman at a Midwest Catholic University, in 1975, taking a Required Core Course, “History of the Americas”, basically a history of Central, South America and Canada, ignoring The United States. On the first day of class the Professor ask for a show of hands “Who in this room is a Conservative?” Some of us raised our hands; he then stated “I am going to ask that question again on the last day of class and, if any of you still raise your hands you will receive an automatic “F”, even if you complete all the work and pass all the exams with an “A” average.”

Last week, after returning from an interview on a network that makes liberals cringe, I came home to an inbox full of emails. Usually, when I come home to a full inbox, it’s because a professor has done something stupid and people want me to write about it. This was no exception. A professor at West Liberty University had banned Fox News as a source and told her students that the "biased" station makes her "cringe." That kind of thinking is common among professors. But few professors are stupid enough to reveal it in a syllabus.
