Yeah it is. It an example of how low our colleges have sunk and little they care for academics.

Since you ignore the fact that both the thrust and the content of 69-4 was answered, why is it of any use to repeat your original bull?

In fact, it was "conducted" by a guest Op-Ed writer who happens to be a shill for the American Enterprise Institute, a hard-right libertarian think tank. This is O'Reilly's source.

I am as shocked that O'Reilly is dealing from the bottom of the deck here as I am that our resident King of Outrage swallowed this hoakum without the slightest shred of skepticism. And I have no doubt that no lessons will be learned here, and that we will soon be presented with another of O'Reilly's turds as if it were filet mignon.

People who do the hiring in the real world disagree. Go ahead and tell your grandchildren not to compete.

Alternate explanation.
Students choose speakers who they think are most interesting or informative. And lo and behold. At the "Best" schools if they are picked for their politics (a HUGE assumption) it is done by the "best" students.
And the Young America Foundation, which is I am sure is totally unbiased, thinks that this is a sign of a political slant rather than of the relative lack of relevancy of "conservative" speakers. And also, by implication, that these schools are important, while the other thousands out there are flyover institutions.

Also.

student governments infested with leftwing activists. Those wishing to invite conservatives are intimidated as are spineless college administrations.

Thank you for your analysis.
I appreciate your direct experience at college.
Now where are you enrolled?
Or do you have even some righty source to quote for your imaginations?

"Infested" huh? How would you suggest dealing with this "infestation" -- by exterminating the vermin?

This may come as a shock to you, but student governments are freely elected by the students, not just "leftwing activists." I guess you simply hate democracy.

infest is a very good word

Leftists impose their agenda on people.An example is the disparity in graduation speakers; they impose their will.Whether leftists are more "interesting" is debatable, although hearing them try to justify their agenda is "interesting" I suppose.
