FIRE’s Kissel in ‘New York Post’ on Syracuse’s War on Satire

December 21, 2010

Yesterday’s New York Post featured an article by FIRE Vice President of Programs Adam Kissel about Syracuse University’s ongoing and unjustifiable war on satire and parody. Syracuse’s College of Law has been investigating student Len Audaer for more than two months over his alleged involvement in the anonymous SUCOLitis satire blog, which aimed to be like The Onion for the law school community. As Adam says in the article, instead of teaching the lessons of American freedom, "Syracuse is teaching the next generation of lawyers that the right not to be offended trumps the rights of free speech and due process."
