It’s News When Professors Can Teach A Class Without Bashing Trump

Professors nowadays have to think hard about how to educate their students without making opposition to President Trump part of the education. It comes so naturally to them that it’s news when they don’t.

Scott Talan, a professor of communications at American University, is exceptional. When he issued guidelines for how to discuss Trump in class, he said not to make a personal attack on Trump. Since students are in a communications class, he wants them to talk instead about how Trump communicates, and not make personal attacks on other students based on their politics.

      When I went back to school my tuition for an engineering diploma was two grand a year.
      I was a banquet manager.
      People who wanted to be a banquet manager paid three grand a year in tuition to get the job I left.
      Ain’t that funny.

    I think if I was a “Professor of Communications” I would tell people I was whore house piano player so they wouldn’t know.

      What the heck is a “Professor” of “Communications” anyhow? Is that like an expert in dialling the telephone?
