Study of Bias in the Selection of Commencement Speakers at 32 Elite Colleges and Universities · 14 June 2006
This study of the selection of commencement speakers is intended
to supplement the Study of Political Bias in the Administration
and to provide an independent measure of its accuracy. In this
case we were able to assign an identity to all the subjects with
a political profile. The results are, in fact, even more imbalanced
than what we discovered in our more imperfect inquiry into the
political views of faculty and administrators. The ratio of commencement
speakers on the left and right was 226-15, a ratio of over 15-1.
Removing the three schools that featured multiple speakers every
year, the count of 172-15 still almost perfectly mirrors the
similar 10-1 ratio we observed with faculty political alignment.

The Case of the Colorado Exam · 20 April 2005
My campaign for academic freedom has roused up a storm of unprincipled opposition from the academic left. Although the campaign is based on the academic freedom tradition of the American Association of University Professors extending back to 1915 it has been compared by its opponents - including the current leadership of the AAUP and the American Federation of Teachers -- to the "red scare" and the " McCarthy witch-hunt " and even Mao Zedong's purge of Communist Party officials during the " Cultural Revolution ."
