What the hell changed?
    Fringe is fringe. What changed in our society that made Charlottesville or Jan. 6th happen? Donít personally understand that level of zealotry either but we live in a free country and as long as people are not infringing on others rights they can and should be allowed to gather and speak their message. Likely wonít have a large bearing on my particular opinion but thatís just me

    So campuses slant left, fine. Are conservatives not allowed? Are they required to change their beliefs? I just think fearing a left slant on campus is weak minded. Stand up for your beliefs and make the most of your own experience.

    Depends which one you watch, obviously. Some slant either way

    and this is what universities do. Teach individual subjects

    They do a lot more than teach individual subjects.

    I try not to watch much anymore, but from what I remember there was one that slanted right and the rest slanted left.

    Illegally camping on lawn, occupying buildings, and intimidating minority students is not free speech. I fully agree about the Jan 6 nutjobs; I consider them the same.

    Agreed. I spent time as EEE and CS. Other than an English writing class that a was req there were no politics discussed ever. And since I was an older than average student at that point I was open and vocal and literary about my diffs with the prof. To her inestimable credit and despite my powerful written pushback she rewarded me on merit and not content. She was a fine example of a higher level educator whom I happened to disagree with at the time regarding subject matter outside her demonstrated expertise.

    A student who presents at a United States institution of higher learning and becomes indoctrinated in any way did not belong there in the first place. IMHO. Our system is designed to foster independent thought.
    Don't believe everything you think.

    I can't stand either one. It's just the same thing in a different outfit. I have to leave the room if either is on

    I would love to cut them all into oblivion, but as I understand it there is no sports only streaming package

    Is there?
