FIRE’s efforts to defend William Paterson University master’s student Jihad Daniel, who has been unjustly punished for “harassment” and “discrimination” for privately replying to a professor’s mass e-mail stating his religious objections to its content, have drawn well-deserved public attention. Wendy McElroy of Fox News commented on the case in “On Campus, Only Some Speech Protected,” while Joyce Howard Price reported on the case for the Washington Times. New York’s Newsday ran the Associated Press story on the controversy, while William Paterson’s home state of New Jersey featured news articles in the Star-Ledger (Newark) and the North Jersey Herald News as well as an opinion column criticizing WPU’s actions in the Bergen Record. Stay tuned for further developments in this case.
