Save the Bigots – How to decry persecution by practicing it. This opinion by William Saletan is somewhat off topic for my blog, but worth a read. He considers the flap at UNC about “forcing” incoming freshmen to read a book about the Quran. Heaven forbid students should be forced to read anything that challenges their world view. Rather, let’s just have them pay their tuition, automatically get As, and move directly into the workforce.

I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University.
