FSU Professor: Fox Lies, MSNBC Tells Truth

A Florida State University professor told his students that Fox News was full of lies, unlike the champions of truth over at MSNBC. The professor’s lecture was recorded and sent to Campus Reform, and now everyone can hear what students are learning from one Mr. William Claggett.

In his Public Parties and Campaigns class, Claggett tells his students that “when I’m home clicking through the stations, oh here comes Fox News, the Fox News Channel. Oh, I don’t stop there. I know they’re simply lying, and I keep on going.” Wait, it gets better. “On the other hand,” Claggett says, “here comes MSNBC. Well, I’ll stop here for a bit, see what truth I can find out the easy way while I’m reading the New York Times.”

Claggett’s comments almost seem as if they are leading into a discussion about intellectual laziness, but he seems to simply be relating what he sees to be the truth of the matter. Conservative media outlets are full of lies, and liberal media outlets are the destination for truth. It’s hard to believe that someone could be so ignorant and get an associate professorship at a respected university, but the proof is in the pudding.

An Education in Idiocy

According to a student who talked to Campus Reform, the recorded lecture is par for the course in Claggett’s class. “There have been a few times where his comments in class have made me feel uncomfortable, but saying Fox News is nothing but lies was a new low,” the anonymous student said. “I’m constantly afraid of speaking my mind in class because I know that my views don’t align with his. And ultimately, I think that my education is worth more than being fearful because I don’t agree with a professor.”

It’s not the least bit shocking, really. Every day in American college classrooms, professors like Claggett are using their authority to blow hot air about their political views. Instead of presenting them as “just one man’s opinion,” they persuade students to believe they’ve come to their views by way of education and experience and truth. And in a way they have; at some point in the past, they sat at the feet of some other liberal professor and got their heads filled with the same BS. The cycle continues.

Can you imagine what kind of feeding frenzy would take place if Claggett had been recorded telling his students that MSNBC was lying and that Fox was the place for truth? He would probably lose his job. There is only one acceptable ideology in today’s academic environment, and it isn’t the one espoused by Sean Hannity. We used to worry that kids would go off to college and get into drugs. Now parents have to worry about a much greater danger: that their kids will come back liberals.

  1. since im the first and likely last on this subject ill attempt to speak for every freedom loving american that knows its too retarded to speak on….
    two things in this world are infinite..the universe and human stupidity and when it comes to communists and liberals — were not sure about the universe !!

    • Well put.

    • Unfortunately this does not surprise me. 1) Progressive Communists love any lie that tickles their ears.
      2) Progressive Communists love to hear anything that demeans the successful and elevates those looking for something for free. So sad that Universities hire stupid professors but I guess if they continue to hire Communist Progressives that’s what can be expected.

      No wonder these graduates cannot get or keep a job. No wonder they graduate students who know nothing about the Constitution, the history of the U.S., the names of their Representatives, the true history of how the Republicans had to fight to free the slaves and then fight to give them the right to vote.

    • Wasn’t the original author of that statement none other than Albert Einstein?

  2. The liberal, socialist, and islamic indoctrination= Ovomit lovers, in colleges is outrageous.

    • Steven Butterbaugh

      People on the Left believe that the truth is whatever people believe. Thus they work to have you believe life is their way. The facts don’t count for them so that combined with the control they have over their students since they grade them, is what gives rise to these kinds of statements. For this change, truth has to mean “correspondence to the facts of reality.”

    • 😕 and maybe about Islamic … :S since last I checked religious indoctrination can be possible iF religion is the only subject being learnt 😕

  3. This Professor must be on CRACK !

  4. Who is to blame? The parents that send their children to these Communist Propaganda Mosques. They are no longer colleges. Get them out!

  5. Laurence X. Odhner

    Sad, isn’t it, that parents and students pay a fortune to attend lectures by a dunce.

    • He’s more an angry hyper feeler who is too insecrue to agrgue in objective debate.

    • So sad these students cannot support themselves and will continue to look to the Government i.e. the working taxpayers to support them from cradle to grave.

      A good example is the 100’s who were fired by the I.R.S. because they were incompetent and/or lazy and now the government is rehiring these same people. Frightening that we are supposed to depend on incompetents to ‘audit’ our taxes. Somehow they overlooked Al Sharpton for decades! “Stupid is as stupid does”.

      • In politics, whenever the DOG wags the TAIL, it’s a highly unusual exception. Surely you’ve heard the “ancient proverb” that tells the story of how the ANUS came to be in authority over all the other parts of the body, haven’t you? “It doesn’t take a brain to be boss; just a stubborn…”

      • Al & Rangel both get a pass because they are “black” !!!!

      • Overlooking Al Sharpton was intentional….remember, he is an “entitled cronie”. Although, wouldn’t everyone of right mind like to “OVERLOOK” Al Sharpton….IF we weren’t footing his bill????!!!!

      • YES, it is downright DISGUSTING that parents….OR WE….are footing the bill for students to be BRAINWASHED and DUMBED-DOWN! We can only pray that most of them are smarter than the “Professors”????? profess to be, and somehow manage to come out amounting to something..

    • This affliction seems to have hit a lot of college professors lately, have you noticed? If he believes that MSNBC reports the truth, he is either delusional or a liberal, which is the same thing.

    • The Dept. of Education has become the Dept. of Indoctrination !

      • I find it humorous and ironic that a fox news supporter is talking about being indoctrinated……….Bwa ha ha haaaaa talk about rich

        • How many conservatives have you heard on your listening to MSNBC? Probably none. A few Republicans, but no conservatives. On the other hand, Fox has liberals on all the time.

        • Congratulations on your successful programing, comrade. May truth and freedom never infect your limited space.

        • Hey slick – More people watch Fox then MSNBC – CNN and ABC combined ! Care to explain that ???

        • I find it disturbing that you are so easily brainwashed, then again the left are known to be uneducated , weak willed and easy to manipulate like puppets on a string.

        • I find it strange how stupid liberals can be to vote for the same incompetent @$$ twice they still think he is the greatest thing sense Hitler!!! Bwa ha ha haaaaaaaaaaa now that’s rich!!!

        • Sad case of delusional (insane) thinking on your part !!! Cant expect anything else from a libtard !!!

        • Most people that watch Fox News also get a print newspaper, very few of which line up with Fox News. How many CNN or PMSNBC viewers get a Conservative newspaper, even if they could find one?

    • In 1964, I attended University of Southern California. Most of my classes were a lot of hard work on stuff that has never come to any relevance whatsoever in my life, but TWO of those classes were more than worthwhile. One was my PHYSICAL EDUCATION class; the other (and even better by far) was my English 101 class, taught by a gentleman by the name of Don Zimbalist. From Don Zimbalist’s remarks that he had put on an essay I had submitted to him, I learned a lot about what’s wrong with universities in general, and HOW IT GOT THAT WAY!
      Don Zimbalist pointed out that the “purpose” (well, as the UNIVERSITY sees it anyway) of a university is NOT to be a “job-training center” (YES, his exact words), but rather, to “produce original knowledge” (HIS words again). I have subsequently learned some discomforting details of what that MEANS: universities are more interested in RESEARCH GRANTS than they are in TUITION RECEIPTS, and SO, just GUESS where that PUTS their PRIORITIES! It is with complete FOREKNOWLEDGE AND INTENT that the STUDENTS are just there to suck HIND TEAT. And as for the “research grants”, most of us already know that those are largely BRIBES to publish propaganda and outright LIES. Having worked more than forty years as an engineer, (which I achieved without so much as an AA degree), I can testify by FIRST-HAND KNOWLEDGE that it is primarily INDUSTRY, and NOT universities, that produce the bulk of USEFUL NEW TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE.

    • Whats worse is , They ( the kids ) BELIEVE IT

    • If you like your insurance – you can keep your insurance ! If you like your doctor – you can keep your doctor ! Obamacare is not a tax (“unless it has to be a tax to get it passed”) ! The lies coming out of this administration are endless ! And MSNBC (BSNBC) publishes them all !

    • Laurence X. Odhner: I don’t know. When I was an undergraduate at MIT (ca 1955). I took a course from Noam Chomsky. He is a very smart man. I think he is horribly confused, but very smart. His academic fame is in semantics (basically the science of words in forming language), but he is more famous for being an ardent and avowed Communist (not a wimp Socialist like a lot of contemporary liberals). At MIT students are expected to learn to distinguish truth from whatever. I don’t remember exactly why I took his course, but it probably was one that satisfied a requirement for graduation. I was a couple of years older than most of my classmates, having spent a couple of years in the Western Pacific repaying the Navy for a college scholarship. What I really remember from the class was that although he and I rrarely agreed on anything, we could discuss our disagreements quite civilly. Decades later I saw him thank MIT for allowing him to be on the faculty and express opinions that he realized most of the students and most of the administration considered to be outrageous. Truly Freedom of Speech and Democracy in action. The students may learn very valuable lessons from Mr. Claggett., though probably not the ones he intended.

  6. MSNBC tells truth what planet do you live on?

    • The same one everyone else does???? 😛 .. funny papers aside …Fox News is part right sometimes … they usually take kernels of truth and run away with them

  7. NWO, lock step and herded like sheep for the slaughter!


  9. Another shithead liberal, leftist, terrorist loving, OBAMA sucking useless POS heard from. You blinder than you are liberal!

  10. The distinguished Professor William Claggett’s lying lecture is
    a reflection of behavior we have become accustomed to throughout academia, the
    media, the government, and our entire society.
    Evil has a beginning and more often than not it begins with
    falsehoods. Look at Obama Care,
    Benghazi, the IRS, Fast & Furious, the Veteran’s Administration scandal,
    the CIA, Bill Clinton and sex, Hillary Clinton her war stories, etc., etc., ad
    nausea, There was a time in this nation when the journalism was based one
    standard; i.e., reporting the truth (facts) rather than propagandizing for the
    sake of “making the news” and/or promoting some tilted agenda. The recently
    uncovered behavior of Brian Williams, NBC and others of their ilk exposes a
    sickness permeating the news media. They
    got caught red-handed and don’t want to handle the situation honorably and
    truthfully; i.e., to call it for exactly what is. This temporary
    “step-down” by Williams is simply a stall for time. Someone at in authority at FSU would do well
    to have Professor Claggett step down—permanently.

  11. We will always have these sort of Human Scum….influencing our children and that is the destruction of our educational system. Again, in human civilizations, people whose brains are not able to grasp the logical nor intelligent decisions and therefore it is unfortunate we either must co exist with them or get rid of them, otherwise our Children and other people are in danger believing their on going LIES. They will either go away or we will have to deal with them as a threat because they know not is right nor wrong.

  12. Have you heard of Brian Williams? NBC, MSNBC, CNBC, all lyres. Bury your liberal head in the sand and ignore the facts as all Dems liberals and brainless morons do! ASSHOLE

  13. Anyone funding FSU has to be out of their minds with the likes of this blind liberal asshole warping the minds of our young! NBC lies are only out done by Obamas!

  14. The left has a remarkable, deeply rooted propaganda machine that began on college campuses (campii?) in the 60’s. As conservative profs retired, the left infiltrated and did so with vigor and in violation of what universities were meant to be, the exercise of free thought across the spectrum of topics. The Greek Philosophers would be horrified. But then, the left has already “rewritten” the classics to suits its ends which of course justifies those means.

    In far too many cases, the left has been able to unquestionably teach that right is wrong and wrong is right to new generations of useful idiots. In the building of that foundation, set some time ago, it has a lot to do with the concept of relative truth.

    Many of the liberal bent are those who won’t and can’t leave the safety nest of what is now university la la land. They are disconnected from reality on their utopian campuses and disallow anything to destroy that illusion. They also tend to be America haters and would just a soon spell it “Amerika”. If a foreign entity were to come for them, they’d soon change their minds, crying for those very people who would still dare to defend them that they so hate.

    This associate prof is a simpleton moron to let his own feelings (no critical thought allowed) get in the way of even recognizing truth from fiction or lies.

    He lets someone like Obama hard pack it up his bunghole, no questions.

  15. He’s a typical Liberal….in deep denial. If he wasn’t, he’d have to face America’s degrading by the Marxis and assorted communist in Odima’s Love a Muslim administration.

  16. So now we have a Florida State University professor siding with left-wing news outlets?
    The abbreviation FSU is more ACCURATE than the name “Florida State University”.
    F.S.U. = F***ing Stupid University.

    • That is exactly what Angela Davis was – a communist and she led many campus riots, vandalism of offices, etc. It had absolutely nothing to do with race. UCLA did do the right thing.

      • You’re correct, in that and to the extent that it was right to fire her for being a communist. Unfortunately, KEEPING all of the WHITE communist professors was a big mistake, because it left the barn door WIDE OPEN for the race card.

  17. It is an old canard “A conservative is a liberal who has been mugged”. Would somebody please mug this fool!!!!!

  18. I have been talking to Dr’s and relatives about fox news and Friday I was set back when the doctor my sister was seeing made a comment about fox when I asked how come he wasn’t wearing red for healthy heart day. Fox was he said ” I only see fox news as social humor ” . I asked why, he said “they don’t know what the truth is.”
    Needless to say I was set back. I didn’t say anymore because I didn’t want to get into an argument. Why do people think it’s not the truth?. If it isn’t then why are billions of people running into it daily. I am one of them.

    • Fox continues to gain viewers, as you cannot fool all the people all the time.
      I will tweet several Truth Tellers on Fox News with Clagget’s name and this report. Perhaps O’Reilly and Van Susteran would like to know they are, according to him, in the employ of liars.

  19. A direct reflection on the FSU Human Relation interview and hiring staff. No Child or Grandchild of mine will ever attend FSU or the other leftist colleges that dot our great nation. Mr. Claggrett has about as much integrity to him as Tom Swayer’s lawyer.

  20. None are so blind as those who do not want to see. This is the sum result of the article

  21. A liberal HAS to say that. Every warm blooded TRUE AMERICAN knows Fox reports on the news that is NOT provided by the Joseph Goebbel’s networks.. of MSNBC, ABC, CBS….and their corporate whores like the male twit that said he was on a chopper that got shot down in Iraq….What a dick….This FSU “professor” is another link in the long chain of liberals who have infiltrated major academia, which as I posted in my facebook is part of the grand strategy that Saul Alinsky had, that now has grown in part of the Hippie marxists morphed into lawyer/politicians that have infiltrated some local and state and US Government……..

  22. This liar of a professor should be fired for using his classroom to push his personal politics. What else does he lie to his students about?

  23. once a f–king putz always a f–king putz

  24. William Claggett is a typical Liberal/Socialist Democrat who lies through his teeth and turns everything topsy turvy! The fault is in who and what institute of “higher learning” hired him!

  25. I wonder what flavor HIS “Kool-Aid” is… if in fact he really IS that stupid to believe what he says… or if indeed ANYONE can be this hateful, gullible and Liberal. Sometimes I question these articles in their validity, because I seems to me that anyone who has kept up with current events, both political and in general, can possibly be so bent on being exposed as an idiot. Does this seem ludicrous to anyone else but me? If he had TWICE the brain power that is defined in this article, the doctors would still need a microscope to see it in an X-ray.

  26. Dittos koctec, dosasoe, pattonknew, Joseph Toth, Conservative, Laurence X Odhner, staberdearth,

  27. It is sad to know yours and my taxes are being used to pay this liberal professor.

  28. There is no right and wrong, only right and more or less right. To conquer the unconquerable, teach the children slavery (to the state) is good and wait for the parents to die off..

  29. When I attended college it was expected that we would discuss even those matters in disagreement with our professors. We were invited to give our opinions without condemnation. I guess now I am old fashioned since I do not think the education of our children should be something other than learning and advancing but instead be subject to brainwashing by the leftists who now seem to control education in our nation.

    • Back in the 1995 area, I was attending Wichita State University [ WSU ]in a summer class taught by a visiting professor. The course was listed as an open discussion of tobacco and the legal system and gun control.
      When the topic of gun control came up I brought some of my fifty years of research, on hand-outs I had prepared.
      When I took a break and returned to my desk, all my paper were gone.
      Turned out the professor had confiscated my material. I was then called to the office to explain why I was disruptive.
      I wish I had thought a little more about it and forced them to expel me. I would have won the law suit.
      But when the SCOUS ruled exactly as I had been writing in the HELLER case, I wrote that professor at her Kentucky State University. I sent her a letter suggesting that the SCOUS got it right, just as I had when she violated my free speech rights.
      She replied, NEVER write me again. I’m sure she doesn’t feel any need to alter he teaching because she “knows the SCOUS got it all wrong.”

  30. Another brainwashed obamacrat

  31. “The education of all children, from the moment that they can get
    along without a mother’s care, shall be in state institutions.”―
    Karl Marx

    My children were NORMAL, intelligent kids till they graduated college. Now they’re leftist free stuff for everyone Kumbaya stooges. Your tax dollars are helping the libTURDS destroy our kids and country.

  32. I know a woman who taught (rather she was a master of propaganda) “history” , in high school. who was so indoctrinated by the left that in a discussion we had, I said,”Criminey, you’d vote for Satan himself if he ran on the Democrat ticket”, with out so much as a blink, she responded, “Damn straight, because I’d know that Satan was the best man for the job”. This is the type of utter ignorance that has overtaken our education system today. The National Education Association is the most communistic organization in America.

    • My history teacher in high screwll stated that the John Birch Society was a communistic organization. These turds are filling our kids heads with crap.

  33. The professor is either a very good liar or just as big a sheep as a lot of other liberals. MSNBC only says what the White House wants it to say. End of story. Sadly, there are thousands of professors like him, who imbue their students with their ideological corruption. I read the book: “The Professors::The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America” several years ago, and man was it even an eye opener. I didn’t have to read the book to understand what was and is going on. The book simply put a name and face to some of them.

  34. Find his contact specs by simply googling his name and look for the FSU listing. It is really quite simple. I’ll refrain from stereotyping…

  35. This is what is wrong with our educational system. People that refuse to see the truth and spew their lies, socialist and communist ideas!

  36. Mark N Starla Traina

















    RUSH LIMBAUGH touches on the TRUTH occasionally, however, GLEN BECK nails the TRUTH 100% of the TIME!


  37. This is only one example of how rotten the higher education system has become. Universities of higher learning have become a cesspool of liberal, progressive indoctrination. I know what they are, because there was a time I was a part of it, but I was NEVER like them! I have always been a proud independent conservative.

    • My professor of Political Science 101 at USC (a.k.a., U$C) was Fred Krinsky. That’s where I saw the beginnings of what you’re talking about, in 1964.

      • My area of expertise was business, so I taught graduate school for a number of universities in respective colleges of business, and what I found was that only about one in ten of us were conservative in our politics. When I couldn’t stand the university system any longer, I published a book which was a scathing criticism of the “system” as my swan song. Most people don’t really know just how terrible higher education has become. The truth is colleges and universities are about sports–America’s new religion.

  38. He is so, worried about Fox News lying and cares nothing at all about the lies the president of the country is spewing out to the masses. Typical Liberal, will pick and choose what they want to believe, if it goes along with their agenda.

  39. Sounds like this idiot prefers other to do his own research for fact and relies on the misrepresentation of a bias new media that kiss the backside of the new world order of psychopathic socialists.

  40. Oh Billy Boy you must have missed “If you like your Dr.,you can keep your Fr. and if you like your policy & company you can keep it also alo with “Shovel Ready Jobs from OBUMMER mouth!!! You are an idiot Billy Boy!!!!

  41. I know my instructors/ teachers had a tremendous influence on me….when i was told something…such as this…i WOULD believe it…whether it was slanting the truth or not..i didn’t know until later years…
    i wonder…do conservative instructors do the same with their students?…or simply apply the truth?.

  42. Progressive Liberal Plantation Party killing American one mind at a time…

  43. Oh you mean like Sharpton and Tawanna Brawley or the Duke lacross team and how the city of New York is hymie town or Brian Williams being in a helicopter that has hit by an RPG and forced down…those kinds of ‘truths” froom NBC/MSNBC?

  44. I would ask this “Professor” one simple question: Can you provide evidence of the lies presented by FOX. I can provide factual evidence of lies told by the main stream media, the name Brian Williams come to mind, you can keep your doctor seems a fairly blatant lie carried by the MSM, there are far too many examples but I will ask the professor to list just one of the lies told by FOX, just one.

  45. A Country Founded by Geniuses but Run by Idiots!

    If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but

    not for entering and remaining in the country illegally — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you have to get your parents’ permission to go on a field trip or

    to take an aspirin in school, but not to get an abortion — you might

    live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you MUST show your identification to board an airplane, cash a

    check, buy liquor, or check out a library book and rent a video, but not

    to vote for who runs the government — you might live in a nation that

    was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the government wants to prevent stable, law-abiding citizens from

    owning gun magazines that hold more than ten rounds, but gives twenty

    F-16 fighter jets to the crazy new leaders in Egypt — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If, in the nation’s largest city, you can buy two 16-ounce sodas, but

    not one 24-ounce soda, because 24-ounces of a sugary drink might make

    you fat — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is

    run by idiots.

    If an 80-year-old woman or a three-year-old girl who is confined to a

    wheelchair can be strip-searched by the TSA at the airport, but a woman

    in a burka or a hijab is only subject to having her neck and head

    searched — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but

    is run by idiots.

    If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions

    of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If a seven-year-old boy can be thrown out of school for saying his

    teacher is “cute,” but hosting a sexual exploration or diversity class

    in grade school is perfectly acceptable — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If hard work and success are met with higher taxes and more

    government regulation and intrusion, while not working is rewarded with

    Food Stamps, WIC checks, Medicaid benefits, subsidized housing, and free

    cell phones — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses

    but is run by idiots.

    If the government’s plan for getting people back to work is to

    provide incentives for not working, by granting 99 weeks of unemployment

    checks, without any requirement to prove that gainful employment was

    diligently sought, but couldn’t be found — you might live in a nation

    that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If you pay your mortgage faithfully, denying yourself the newest

    big-screen TV, while your neighbor buys iPhones, time shares, a

    wall-sized do-it-all plasma screen TV and new cars, and the government

    forgives his debt when he defaults on his mortgage — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If being stripped of your Constitutional right to defend yourself

    makes you more “safe” according to the government — you might live in a

    nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If the media panders to your openly socialist leader while the IRS targets groups with dissenting views— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your government ‘cracks down’ on legal gun sales to law abiding citizens while secretly supplying illegal guns to Mexican drug cartels— you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    If your local government (Chicago) outlawed gun ownership for ‘the safety of its citizens’ and now boasts the worst murder rate in the country — you might live in a nation that was founded by geniuses but is run by idiots.

    What a country!

    How about we give God a reason to continue blessing America?

    This was borrowed from another blog, author unknown, please spread it far and wide!

  46. He must be one of MSNBC’s 2 viewers. If he thinks all the people are as stupid as he is, he has another think coming, if he can think at all.

  47. My son graduated from FSU law school many years ago. THank God, that he was there before these libs came in.He is very much a conservative, an ethical man, and a lover of ethical mankind. I do not believe he would have stayed at FSU or any other lib school these days. I am proud that my grandson dropped classes by libs when he was in college. He would get up and walk out in the middle of class. I am so proud of my family.

  48. A democRAT acting like a democRAT. When communist start losing they resort to the big lie even when they know there propaganda is untrue William Claggett [communist ] needs an anima with a shot gun,

  49. This is yet another reason why responsible parenting NEVER ends. Even when you send your stupid (as in lacking info) kids to college, you can almost guarantee they’ll be plied with liberal BS 24/7 by some frustrated failure who could never do, so they settled for teaching. These losers are all about that all precious tenure & damaging that which they envy, could not attain, and loathe- a normal family where people think for themselves & actually talk to each other. So, parents, make your kids turn off the damn phones, sit down to eat together and TALK to them. Otherwise you will not instill the kind of certainty and self esteem that comes with quantity time, there’s no such thing as “quality time”. I was raised that way and often took on professors in college and even dental school. The better ones actually respected me for not being a pu$$y who feared them. In USC, I was class Pres. for 2 years, a term that normally lasted 4 months (1 semester), coz my classmates knew I had cojones.

    • Like you, I also attended USC, but unlike you, I was not a good enough student to last there beyond one year. Nevertheless, without the help of any college degree whatsoever, I enjoyed over 40 years of success as an electronics design engineer. My never-ending quest for knowledge and understanding of things technical, the help of a few excellent on-the-job mentors, and the quality of my work, enabled me to succeed. You might find my “In 1964…” comment interesting.

  50. So let him show the lies,a lot of us may find it hard to believe but I see it beginning to turn back to reality and truth.I also see it all turning away from Hillary Clinton.

  51. No more funding for Institutes for higher lying porpagandizing like gruberized MIT&Claggeted FSU

  52. How much does he get paid?

  53. A couple of things seem wrong about the Patriot News Daily article above. First, is the audio the person has is of less than two minutes of a lecture. One would suppose that there was about 58 more minutes that could have been much different. Anonymity of the supposed student, of course, should make us all suspicious of its authenticity. Secondly, there have been a number of studies of Fox News and its accuracy. A recent one indicates that Fox News tells the truth about 40% of the time. I don’t beleive that is a good batting average for new broadcasting. Now, MSNBC also isn’t always accurate either so that must weigh in too. I think that knowing that no one always tells the truth puts the burden on each of us to use multiple sourses for information. If we only relie on Fox, MSNBC, CBS or whomever we are at fault for being stupid. Even the Patriot New Daily is untruthful at times. At the least they are slanted which also should make the readers very careful of the content.

    Peace to all.

  54. I’m guessing he doesn’t realize that Fox News is still dominating the news ratings and MSNBC has reached an all time low. http://www.ijreview.com/2015/02/247232-msnbc-hits-decade-low-ratings-cnn-suffers-fox-dominates/

  55. This so called professor sounds like he is one of the typical type of professors or universities are putting out now…a died in the wool progressive, liberal, communist fink!

  56. You know what they call PhDs’? Piled high and deep and too often these guys have no clue about anything as they spent their whole education studying one small microcosm of life so they could focus on that idea and write a paper on the idea? This leads to lack of abstract thinking and eventually a feeble mind.? He probably believed Sharpton’s statements about racism and that anyone that voted fro Romney was racist? Probably touts Global Warming also?

  57. Actually, the professor is spot on…

  58. Brain dead professors teaching college & then we wonder why college students don’t even know who the Vice President is.

    • Alarmingly, to a greater extent than that they are incompetent, they are bought-and-paid-for TOOLS of the New-World-DIS”order”-installer wannabees. You’d be STUNNED at whose pockets the hands of the following are in:
      UN, CFR, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission, Illuminati, Skull and Bones…

  59. CLAGGET LIES about FOX NEWS! Poor students and parents paying for an education that is full of a lying liberal!!

  60. This is what “higher education” has become. It is no longer about learning, it is about indoctrination. If you disagree with some left wingnut, you get drummed out of class, or receive a failing grade.


  62. If it wasn’t serious it would be funny, this guy and others who believe this way are uninformed about the facts and are so convinced that they do not recognize their own stupidity. Considering the fact that the survey after survey shows the majority of viewers watch FOX, in fact FOX has almost more viewers than the MSM stations combined, consider the fact that the last two mid term elections have confirmed that the majority of people disagree with this fool and others like him. I wonder what the idiot thinks of “lyin Brian Williams” and all of his truth? The sad part is we allow these fools to teach our children.

  63. Deport all illegals

    People please don’t just post call the school and demand this person be removed. We all have to come together to stop this insanity.

  64. What a jack off,lol

  65. fox is like professional wrestling…. entertainment

  66. I would agree with you but I don’t like being told how to be an American by a station owned by an Aussie and and Arab and thats what fox news is …….fox news panders to the ignorant and spews hatred toward the poor

  67. Cloggit is apparently mesmerized with PMSNBC and theNew York Slimes that he morphs into a dyed in the wool jerkoff when it comes to incorporating a modicum of common sense. His actions demonstrate that he is a counterfeit that wouldn’t even make a pimple on a legitimate professors butt.

  68. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. But he needs to keep his personal views to himself.. He’s not the first person with a bunch of letters after his name to spread their ignorance.

  69. Guess we all have our fantizies.

  70. Fox New Lies much like the likes of Brian Williams at NBC, and Al Sharpton at MSNBC and how many more could
    I tick off but alas this blog only has so much memory.

  71. hahahahahahaha… what an idiot!

    • In all likelihood, he IS an idiot; but what’s far WORSE is that he’s a TOOL and a PUPPET. Like most other puppets, he was PLACED into position. The PERPETUAL ANONYMITY of the PUPPETMASTERS is the SECRET CANCER that eats away at the heart of our sovereignty, thereby undermining the FOUNDATION OF OUR LIBERTY.

  72. ROF LMMFAOOOOOoooo…… Hes not right in the Head

  73. Like most college professors, he is delusional

  74. Typical, liberal BS by a possible MS professor. And we pay for our kids to be spoon fed this horse crap? No wonder America is so screwed up.

  75. That is why you should support the “Conservative” Schools. The Liberal schools indoctrinates the students for their causes. This is why it came about.

  76. Ignorant dumbass–’nuff said!

  77. Pisses me off that my tax money may be going to help pay this ignorant liberal clown’s salary. We Floridians need to start putting pressure on FSU to [1] get rid of him and [2] stop recruiting hoodlums for its football team [and maybe other FSU sports teams as well].

  78. What a bunch of liberal socialist garbage !!!

  79. No wonder Obummer wants to send kids to college for free!

  80. YEP Brian Williams the most trusted Name in Television!!!

  81. Clagnet you are a typical liberal academic ignorant mentally challenged idiot. Like most mentally ill libs you will cheat and lie to try to promote your sic agenda.

  82. Nobody said you had to have common sense to get a PhD.

    • The “Ph” in “PhD” stands for “Philosophy”. “Philosophy” is that branch of human endeavor (notice I said “endeavor” instead of saying “learning” or “science”) from which we have been “gifted” with such inane questions as, “If a tree falls in the middle of a forest with no one around to hear it, does it still make a sound?”. So YES, I completely agree with you!

      • This country needs more people walking the talk, instead of head in the clouds. At least where we are currently, as a nation . Thanks.

  83. prof faggot is a brain dead liberal no iq idiot

  84. This PhD is a “Troll” for the “Extreme Liberal” Media–Controlled by George Soros-! His son was working at
    the New York Times–“A most Liberal ‘Bias’ Newspaper-! Soros bought ‘Censorship Control on 30 Major U.S
    TV News Media-! That’s why ‘Major News Scandals on Democrats’ are not available to the American Public-!

  85. college professorts are generally a bunch of commies!

  86. As I read the comments I am dismayed at the lack of serious discussion and facts. It appears that the comments are simply character assasinations on others. Does anyone want a serious discussion of the issues of the day or do you prefer to take part in this petty garbage? Your choice.

  87. The moron should be fired this kind of crap is why we have a country full of retarded obammy voters.

  88. Just another typical brain dead liberal enjoying his fantasy land. Shalom!

  89. His views are represented by the MSNBC ratings. Students are smart enough to ignore this cative audience simpleton thinking.

  90. Sadly, most of “education” has become “indoctrination in statism by the delusional and/or tyrant wannabes.”
    I am SO glad my daughter had homeschooled her seven kids. I *know* they’ve not been indoctrinated to be good little serfs.

  91. Wow, this guy is a professor? Scary as hell, isn’t it?

  92. As a parent to a College Student it was my responsibility to make certain that my daughter would receive the best education for the money. I live in WI, so when it came time to choose a University, I insisted she not go to UW Madison, or UW Milwaukee. The professors there are doing nothing short of indoctrinating their students to be liberals and Democrats. To my relief my daughter said to me, “Don’t worry Dad, I don’t want to go there, it’s too liberal for me”. I do not mind if they teach liberalism, but it had better come with the same education on what it means to be a conservative, not their version of Conservatism, but the historical, fact proven conservatism. As a country, we should be DEMANDING this of our schools instead of accepting what we currently have.

  93. Randall McCarroll

    this kind of person is a coward they hide behind positions of authority and could never stand up to open debate
    any one they preach at that expresses a different opinion will be destroyed and humiliated

  94. That just proves the ignorance in our education system these days. I want the dumbazz to tell us what Fox has lied about and I guarantee that we can prove that MSNBC has, if not by speech, at least by omission. I dont know about speech b/c I do not watch them regularly b/c they DO NOT report on the real stories that we as a mericans need to hear, Fox does. Fox is the ONLY true news station where the people can get the news and the truth.

  95. FSU will lose respect rather quickly with faculty with such aporia.

  96. The mainline news media, notably MSNBC and CNN are among those who call good “evil” and evil “good”. Many college professors are perpetrating the lies of the liberal media propaganda machines on students who are already inundated with untruth in “science” classes, economics, history, social studies and others. Students who express conservative ideas are often punished when grades are given. Those who express Christian beliefs openly are persecuted for their faith. If they stand against homosexuality and liberal progressive ideology they are ridiculed and warned that they will have no future. College is no longer a place of education rather it is a place of “indoctrination”. We’ve seen it all before and unfortunately that indoctrination is beginning in elementary schools. It is all part of a sinister grand plan to convert this nation to the world system. But then, it has all been prophesied and it is not new!

  97. Politics has no place in the classroom. A professors political or religious views are their own, and NOT curriculum, and should be presented as that, a personal viewpoint NOT fact.

  98. Norma Harris-Check

    Anyone with any intelligence knows that is not the truth! That’s how liberals work!

  99. “ASSOCIATE Professor” Claggett likely holds a Masters Degree. He needs to further his education. Maybe he should try AL JAZEERA AMERICA” for real truth. Sorry for the student – money down the drain.

  100. Hilarious that this naive assssclown would think that he could teach a thinking young person anything. What a failure, and what a waste of taxpayer money and tuition this bozo is. He apparently sees everything 180 degrees off kilter. Glasses can’t help that brand of stupid…

  101. Puke pond scum liberals infest all universities in the country, especially in a state such as Florida where they love their freebies. If you consider Sharpton, Tourette, Schultz and Matthews as truthful you have to be a Florida moron!

  102. where did u get a phd from the” mental university” i bet u got honors.

  103. Certified liberal moron. Didn’t tealize that FSU supports teaching BS.

  104. One more freak teaching your kids, FSU full of SH*t University

  105. Hey students, ask him to prove it!!

  106. Fox News Vs Karl Marx, I can not see that. more as Hitler propaganda machines.

  107. The Left owns and controls, the media, schools, unions, and Democrats.
    ABC, NBC, CBS are owned and controlled by the Left. They have formed a cabal and together, they set and control public opinion with a constant stream of liberal propaganda.
    Did you know the three “NEWS” Programs on ABC, NBC, and CBS are not aired at the same time? NBC (5:30-6pm) CBS (6-6:30pm) and ABC (6:30-7pm) are timed to pass their viewers from station to station. Their Programs are very similar in structure, and their Propaganda stories are written to prop each others credibility up.
    When they are done with the nightly “news” they have set the national narrative, confirmed the stories for each other, and firmly implanted liberal progressive propaganda into their viewers brains. From the inside, you are completely unaware of the indoctrination.
    That is why they are so successful at squashing stories that hurt 0bama. AND that is why they are so successful at sensationalizing stories that hurt Conservatives. There is a special place in h3ll for the hypocrites that control these stations.
    We can do something about the corruption. But we MUST stick together.

  108. I bet he believes Brian Williams is being railroaded too!

  109. You know there is no patrolling the people that are supposedly good for our kids at college, I think we need an “Angie’s List” of professors! especially the really covert liberal bags of excrement.

  110. $10 says Claggett is yiddish.

  111. Hey, so-called “professor,” PROVE IT! PROVE that Fox lies or misleads and that PMSNBCLSD tells the truth!! You CAN’T, You CANNOT, Mr. so-called “professor.” You’re just anotherleft-wing hack poisoning the minds of college students….pathetic…If anybody’s the liar, it’s YOU, it’s YOU, Mr. so-called “professor!!!”

    • You are big on making bald, unsubstantiated assertions. Since you
      make such assertions, you are obviously not intelligent enough to know
      that making such assertions is a complete waste of time for everyone
      reading these assertions, including yourself. All such assertions are
      illegitimate and excluded from any intelligent conversations. Why is
      that? Because, if we include such assertions, then anyone can assert
      anything, which inevitably leads to moronic conversations. This is not
      my mere opinion. It is a well established principle of logical

  112. Just drop the class and let this clown talk to himself.

  113. Hopefully some kids will see right through this biased indoctrination and make their own decisions after these lectures.

  114. It is widely accepted that using your position over someone, to sexually exploit them is illegal and immoral. Perhaps it should be equally illegal to use your position over someone, to threaten them or bully them in any manner.

    • You mean like the IRS ??? The EPA ??? OSHA ??? DOE ??? SCOTUS ??? DOHS ??? Is there one single government agency Barrack doesn’t use to intimidate and bully his adversaries ???

  115. It really frightens me that I have a Granddaughter that will be entering college in September. She has led a small town life. She wants to be a Journalist. But what kind of journalist will they make her into with all of this crap being shoved down her throat. While she is very intelligent, she has been brought up in a Liberal state, NJ. Graduating 4th in her class.

  116. Dr. Eric Barron is the recently appointed President of Florida State University. The issue here is NOT what one thinks of Fox News or MSNBC. … it’s about the role a university should play in teaching students to be thoughtful . Students need to learn how to be evaluative and learn the importance of inquiry and reflection. There can be no argument that a professor who ” indoctrinates” students as it appears Assistant Professor Claggett does, needs some support from more senior faculty and administration. PLEASE do not think I’m saying he should be FIRED. He may be a very fine person who perhaps misunderstands the concept of “academic freedom” and please know that a person with a rank of ASSISTANT PROFESSOR is a beginner in the profession who may simply need guidance. That having been said … there is ample evidence that faculty in higher education is predominantly Liberal because hiring decisions are made by faculty committees and administrators who are Liberals. Decisions on who gets “Tenure” are also made by department faculty who are LIBERALS.

  117. Claggett needs to be Fired immediately. Parents should home school their kids. Then the unions and the scum liberals can’t indoctrinate our kids

  118. Too bad he has lost his brain if he ever had one, HE LIES as bad as MSMBC and He would hate to have me in his class, he would get a rude awakening.

  119. We can hope enough young students can see through this progressive garbage that they won’t automatically become leftist, but don’t hold your breath!

  120. I wish a college such as Hillsdale would open a Journalism School.

  121. Mark N Starla Traina

    MSNBC put BARACK OBAMA in the WHITEHOUSE in 2007 and helped to keep him in the WHITEHOUSE again in 2011.



    MSNBC should not MOVE to the LEFT or to the RIGHT!
