Big thanks to Phil Haskett of for hosting the document.

FrontPage Magazine is on online publication, its editor-in-chief is noted author David Horowitz, whose latest book is The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America Horowitz is the braintrust behind the Academic Bill of Rights. Discover the Network also known as DTN, is a project of FrontPage.

DePaul's actions came about a year after it suspended Professor Thomas Klocek for engaging students in an academic debate.
