    Prof Rips Fox News for Airing Her Anti-Trump Speech

    Prof Rips Fox News for Airing Her Anti-Trump Speech

    Princeton professor Leeanga-Yamahtta Taylor may not be a household name, but when the African-American studies teacher called President Trump a “racist, sexist megalomaniac and the biggest danger the world faces at a commencement address, she got her 15 minutes of fame with some coverage on Fox News.

    Now she’s squawking about the attention as victimization because of alleged threats she has received, not to mention some criticism, saying, “I am not a newsworthy person.”

    She says she’s canceling her scheduled public lectures in Seattle and the University of California-San Diego “for fear of my safety and my family’s safety,” having received “more than 50 hate-filled and threatening emails,” including a murder threat, since the Fox News segment.

    Taylor delivered the speech last week at Hampshire College, a small Massachusetts private school best known for lowering the flag to half-staff to mourn Trump’s victory.

    The college posted video of the speech on YouTube. It also published an extended text excerpt from the speech by Taylor.

    One of her claims to fame was organizing this year’s International Women’s Strike. She has written a best-selling book called “From Black Lives Matter to Black Liberation.

    But when her recent speech came to the attention of Fox News, she suddenly became shy and introverted – not a public persona, not worthy of news coverage.





    NUMBER 1: It can be put on an open video site, it can be quoted, it can be printed as a transcript, but it can't be covered by a news organization?

    NUMBER2: Yes, some people really are that stupid.
