Neil Cavuto: Liberal Professors are "Insane"

Reported by Melanie - April 27, 2006

Toward the end Your World today (April 27, 2006), Neil Cavuto opened a segment with a graphic over his shoulder that read: "Liberal Leanings." He then introduced David Horowitz, the former liberal turned radical neocon, who, with Cavuto's help, was on to spread his brand of hate and to promote his old book, The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America . In Professors, Horowitz lists 101 professors he thinks should be purged from our universities in a sort of political cleansing.

As I said, Horowitz's book is "old" - it has been out since February - so his appearance on Your World and Cavuto's promotion of his book seemed odd but hey, perfect timing isn't required when it comes to bashing liberals and I guess Fox ran out of good news stories from Iraq, which, incidentally, hasn't been mentioned all week.

The purpose of the segment was to bash liberals, of course, but the stated topic was how conservative students can avoid, as Cavuto said, "being brainwashed by radicals."

Horowitz's luminous advice was that parents should "protect" their kids by "telling them to chose their courses carefully."

Cavuto wondered, "How do you know that the professor you have is insane?"

Horowitz, again offering advice that I'm sure nobody ever thought of, said "By contacting other students."

Cavuto wondered what a student should to do if there were only a "couple of professors who teach the required course you need and one of them is a nut?"

Horowitz said, "That is a problem" because "the left has worked to get its courses required."

Cavuto wrapped the segment up with, "Be on guard. Be on guard."

Comment: More of what masquerades as "fair and balanced news" from Fox.
