More on Columbia University
By Mike Rappaport

As Maimon mentions, Columbia appears to have behaved rather badly in its investigation of the alleged intimidation by Middle Eastern Studies professors of students who do not accept a pro-palestinian position.

These fights between the Left Wing Academy and the MSM, on one side, and the blogosphere and other new media, on the other, just keep on occurring. The heavy handed tactics of Columbia seem outrageous. But thanks to blogs like Powerline (and the reporting of the New York Sun), these tactics are now being exposed and a price is being paid.
