In the run-up to Milo Yiannopoulos' scheduled appearance at UC Berkeley, several professors signed onto to two open letters sent to Chancellor Nicholas Dirks urging him to cancel the event. (He refused,but the event was cancelled by a riot.). Many of these letters were published in the Daily Californian campus newspaper (below).
You will note that in response to one of my comments in the q and a, another reader made a great observation.
"Amazing how people can get PhDs and be professors without knowing the first thing about the First Amendment."
"Editor’s note: The following open letters are transcripts of emails sent by UC Berkeley faculty to Chancellor Nicholas Dirks and Associate Chancellor Nils Gilman. They have been edited for style and clarity." [emphasis added]
A great observation, my friend. Here we have university professors writing open letters to their chancellor, which the student journalists at the Daily Californian have to edit for style and clarity.
