“Facts Count”: Examination of David Horowitz’s Dangerous Academics book
Free Exchange on Campus, a coalition of academic and public interest groups formed in response to David Horowitz’s “Academic Bill of Rights” initiative campaign, has just released a major report refuting Horowitz’s book, The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. The coalition’s researchers introduce the report…
After conducting interviews with the professors in Mr. Horowitz’s book and fact-checking Mr. Horowitz’s evidence, the Free Exchange on Campus coalition has drawn the following conclusions:
- Mr. Horowitz’s book condemns professors for actions that are entirely within their rights and entirely appropriate in an atmosphere that promotes the free exchange of ideas.
- Mr. Horowitz’s research is sloppy in the extreme and, we believe, manipulated to fit his arguments.
- In our view, Mr. Horowitz’s conclusions are based on faulty premises.
