Shock: Mizzou Still Melting Down After Catastrophic Social Justice Warrior Locust Storm

Who wants to go to school to be intimidated by Benetton Nazis?

John Sexton notes that even though the New York Times mostly plays Mizzou's catastrophe straight, they can't help themselves from, get this, getting very vague and imprecise about some of the thuggeries committed by their fellow travelers.

The Times’ account of what happened at Mizzou is fairly good, though the description of one of the student grievances was a bit anodyne. “This was followed by the failure of the university president, Timothy M. Wolfe, to get out of his car to speak with demonstrators during the homecoming parade in October, drawing accusations of indifference,” the Times reports.

Actually, what happened was that a group of about a dozen black students got in front of the car carrying Mr. Wolfe through the parade and began hectoring him and the audience with a bullhorn. When the car tried to slowly move around the protesters, Jonathan Butler put his rear end on the hood. Thereafter, Butler claimed a protester had been hit by a car."

Meanwhile, the National Laughingstock (don't click, I'll give you the good stuff) does some journ0lismisting of its own:

The new culture war targeting American universities appears to be working

By Philip Bump

This is an article showing rapidly-declining approval ratings for colleges by Republicans, which Phillip Bump does not ascribe to colleges becoming Benetton Nazi Party freak-shows and show-trials, but rather to a contrived "culture war" "targeting" universities.

That’s the finding of a new survey from Pew Research released on Monday. It asked respondents if they viewed various institutions as having a net positive or net negative effect on the country. For no institution was the gulf between Democrats and Republicans wider than on the role of colleges and universities — wider even than the gap on the national news media

Rather than give the National Laughingstock your click, you can go directly to the Pew poll this journ0lismist digests. This graph showing positive vs negative associations with various institutions is the newsiest bit.
