Bradford tenure story goes national
Posted 6:13 PM by Luke
FoxNews has picked up the story. Read John Gibson's take on it...

Also, Professor Roisman sent the following letter to Fox and has asked that ILN publish it as well:

John Gibson's report of June 29, 2005, "Un-Collegial?," contains false statements which I insist you and he correct immediately.

No letter about Professor Ward Churchill was written by me. I am one of more than 500 academics who signed an Open Letter from Concerned Academics, which is available at

The letter to which I added my name is not "a defense of Ward Churchill for his little Eichmans remark." [The absence of punctuation is in Mr. Gibson's article.[ The letter is a defense of academic freedom and specifically says that "the issues here have nothing to do with the quality of Ward Churchill's scholarship or his professional credentials. However one views his choice of words or specific arguments, he is being put in the dock solely for his radical critique of U.S. history and present-day policy . . . "

Gibson's statement that "When Bradford refused to sign the letter . . . Roisman and others . . . decided he was being 'un-collegial' . . ." is false in two respects: first, it assumes that I and others fault Professor Bradford for being "uncollegial," which is not the case for me; second, it suggests that my views of Professor Bradford are related to his not signing the letter, which is false. I am a strong proponent of the proposition that Professor Bradford, like Professor Churchill, should not be prejudiced in any way by anyone because of the substance of his views about anything.

On a less significant point, Gibson errs in stating that the flag displayed in our law school's atrium was removed. It was not removed. It hangs, as it has for some time, in a prominent position in the atrium.

Mr. Gibson made no effort to contact me to ascertain the truth of any of the material which he has published. I repeat that I expect a prompt and full correction of his false statements.
