Dave Barry on Campus Free Speech (VIDEO)

What's Your Reaction:

Today, my organization, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), released a new video featuring Pulitzer Prize-winning humor columnist Dave Barry. In the video, Dave discusses the importance of freedom of expression, the state of free speech on college campuses, and the culture of censorship. He also talks about an amazing FIRE case that he was a part of in 2006 when Marquette University in Wisconsin actually censored one of his quotes:


At the end of the video, FIRE Vice President Robert Shibley mentions three other almost unbelievable cases. You can watch videos on our YouTube page about the student who was expelled for a collage, the student found guilty of harassment for silently reading a book, and the major state university that required students to disclose their sexual preferences.
