Follow up: Thomas Klocek free speech case discussed on the O'Reilly Factor

Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor is the highest rated news program on cable. As mentioned earlier this evening, the Thomas Klocek free speech struggle with DePaul University was discussed in the "Factor Follow Up Segment this evening" I taped it, replayed it, and I think I got the transcript right.

The Follow Up segment was about Ward Churchill, the embattled Colorado university ethnic studies professor, whose list of misdeeds are too numerous to mention. But if you need any reminders, then dive in here.

Show host Bill O'Reilly, like many people, is wondering why Churchill still is a professor at Colorado University.

As part of the discussion on the Churchill mess, one of O'Reilly's guests, David Harsanyi of the Denver Post, mentioned:

"But I want to point out there is some hypocrisy here. At DePaul, for instance, there is a professor named Thomas Klocek who was thrown out for saying some pro-Israel things to a Palestinian crowd."

Big night on the O'Reilly Factor.

A big thanks to David Harsanyi.
