David Horowitz talked about his book The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America, published by Regnery Publishing. He argued that left-wing radicals have taken over various departments at universities around the country and use their privileged positions to propagandize about their own political biases. He criticized certain academics in humanities departments where they are allowed to teach subjects beyond their expertise. Mr. Horowitz, speaking at a student-sponsored event at Duke University, also pointed out professors at the school whom he believes are trying to limit the spirit of open debate that universities are supposed to embrace. Groups in the audience attempted to disrupt his speech. Mr. Horowitz took questions from the audience following his remarks.

The program was introduced by a telephone interview with Neal Sengupta, who covered the event for the Duke Chronicle. The interview was conducted from the C-SPAN studios on March 23, 2006. close
