BOSTON (CBS) – The Bias Response Team has hundreds of college campuses encouraging students to turn in fellow students or professors for what they deem to be offensive speech. This includes political views, which other students may disagree with. Senior program officer with the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education (FIRE), Adam Steinbaugh, joins us tonight to discuss his findings on the team. Does the Bias Response Team discourage free speech?

  1. I wasn’t aware of this either and it is disturbing. But, it’s not that surprising. I don’t know where people took a wrong turn, but they definitely have. When you see what is happening in society today between political views that disagree. People are not willing to consider an opinion they disagree with and are labeling people with nasty names, just because they disagree with them. It is an increasing level of intolerance at the same time, a hypocrisy with suggesting the intolerance is in the name of people who are defending tolerance. It’s quite disturbing. What is wrong with people?

  2. And I was not aware of this show – Nightside. I like it. Great to see a political talk radio show that is reasonable.
