Student demands for censorship get a lot of coverage. Spiked Online’s Free Speech University Rankings, now in its third annual edition, argues that there is a “crisis of free speech on campus”.
By analysing the censorious policies and actions that have taken place on British campuses, Spiked concluded that 63.5 per cent of universities actively censor speech and 30.5 per cent stifle speech through excessive regulation. You can barely go a few days without encountering a new op-ed covering censorship on campus.
Maajid Nawaz describes the students demanding censorship as members of the “regressive left”. Milo Yiannopoulos calls them “snowflakes”.
The media’s attacks on Donald Trump have been so out of control that even former CNN host and Piers Morgan is calling them out on it.
On Wednesday’s edition of FNC’s Hannity the current U.S. editor of The Daily Mail eviscerated the American press’s attempt to “attempt to delegitimize, sabotage and destroy the Trump presidency before it’s even started.” Morgan added: “I think that is un-American. I don’t think it’s a patriotic thing that they are doing. I think it’s nakedly partisan.”
