West Virginia professor Stephanie Wolfe told her class not to use FOX News in her class.
Students and parents are questioning a college professor after she reportedly issued a syllabus that filtered student’s research options
The syllabus tells students in a West Liberty University political science course what sources they can and cannot use.
Among those students are asked not to use are The Onion, an openly fictitious parody of real-life news, and Fox News, a professional news organization.
In the syllabus, the professor allegedly says, “The tagline Fox News makes me cringe.”
“One of our values at West Liberty is to encourage students to go out and inquire and gather information and look at as many different sources as possible on any side, before you reach your opinion,” said Robin Capehart, president of West Liberty University.
Upset students and parents have taken their concerns to local media, like NEWS9’s news partner Dave Bloomquist at WWVA, who shared an email from a concerned parent with us.
Here’s a look at the lib instructor’s syllabus.
Stephanie takes her indoctrination duties seriously.
