Washington U Harassed Citizen Journalist


The event yesterday at Washington University in St. Louis with commie-Truther former Green Czar Van Jones was billed as open to the public. As it should, its a partially funded University with your tax dollars.
But university officials harassed citizen journalist Adam Sharp who came to the event to ask Jones about his racial green views and his campaign to remove Andrew Breitbart from ABC's election night coverage.
They even accused him of being with Fox News. Finally Jones allow the videotaping, but won't take questions from Adam.

Is this communist Russia or the USA?

Washington University's annual tuition is $39,400. This school is for the elite's.

The school is known to have a high enrollment of liberals.

I can fully understand why the school would not want a video of communist Van Jones to be available as it would cause a reduction of financial contributions to the school and set back their agenda of churning out socialists for the left to put into office.

Looks like some in this country want to head that way Chris. Amazing that 4 to 5 other cameras were OK, but Adam's camera was not.

-AP I was wondering if you had caught this. A public university promoting the likes of Jones. Can we say indoctrination of our youth. I think another one for the young guns to tackle and defund, once they seat the 112th.

Is being a truther bad in rightwing land? Then why are there so many rightwingers who are truthers?

Atleast if you going to label people and call them names be consistent.

Maybe Van Jones can join Rightwinger Alex Jones and Fox news host Judge Andrew Napolitano in the truther Van, as it journeys from rightwing conspiracy to rightwing conspiracy.

Truther, no, if you get help for the delusional psyche for being a truther. Since there is no evidence to solidly back up such distorted theory.
Now back to the subject of a public University claiming it is private property and a private function and trying not to allow Adam (but 5 others were) to video tape the gathering.

I'm not a truther, nor am i suggesting anyone should be. but if your going to attack lefties for that then please feel free to attack the righties too.

As for Washington University, i found this on google...

Washington University in St. Louis
Saint Louis, MO. Private teaching and research university offering a variety of undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs.

And even public facilities can have private functions. There's nothing illegal with that. And public facilities can limit the recording of video to pre-screened and things like that. nothing of that sort is illegal or unconstitutional. What would give you the opinion that public universities are open to the general public at all times and at will?

First, it was reported as "open to the public".

Second, if you noticed from the video Adam had a second person there to video tape it also, but no one approached him about video taping nor harassed him.

Third, it might be a private University, however I did say "As it should, its a partially funded University with your tax dollars"

'In 2006, the university received $434 million in federal research funds, ranking seventh among private universities receiving federal research and development support'

Last, you bring up lefty/righty but I never refereed to that left/right thing. I said 'if you get help for the delusional psyche for being a truther. Since there is no evidence to solidly back up such distorted theory'
Now once again you're trying to get me to write words here by saying "if your going to attack lefties for that then please feel free to attack the righties too"
But if you follow the conversation here, Joe you'd see this.
You:Is being a truther bad in rightwing land?
Me:Truther, no, if you get help for the delusional psyche for being a truther.
I mean what more do you want?

This is not a left/right thing here. But being the partisan hack that you are (now look who's partisan), you need to stop and comprehend what's being said.
