Professor Bans Students From Using Fox News As A Source

February 15, 2013
Professor Bans Students From Using Fox News As A Source
While it’s not shocking that a journalism professor would ban students from citing news sources that are not credible, it is eyebrow-raising that one of those sources would be Fox News. In a copy of a syllabus obtained by Fox,Stephanie Wolfe, a visiting professor of journalism at West Liberty University in West Virginia, banned her students from citing Fox because she finds it cringe-worthy.

In the syllabus, the Wolfe banned The Onion and Fox News. “Please do not subject me to this biased news station,” Wolfe wrote. “I would almost rather you print off an article from The Onion.”




The university’s president, Robin Capehart, did not appear to agree with Wolfe’s decision when asked for comment.
“One of our values at West Liberty is to encourage students to go out and inquire and gather information and look at as many different sources as possible on any side, before you reach your opinion,” Capehart told a local West Virginia news outlet. “Any attempt to limit the breadth of a student’s ability to investigate is obviously something at which we have a concern.”

when will she be fired?

It'd be hilarious to see "the Onion" as a student's source

And who would use FOX as a source anyway?

I saw a student FLIP THE **** OUT last year after he wrote a term paper citing wikipedia exclusively as a source and failed miserably.

He's no longer in school.

Would have been better off using the Onion?

Probably. At least with using the Onion as a source his paper would have been intentionally funny. This way it was funny in the same way somebody getting kicked in the balls is funny.

If I were doing schoolwork I'd use a wiki to help me find sources to read, then name those sources and never mention the wiki.

The ONLY potentially proper use of Wiki as a "source"....all HS students SHOULD know, though. Though most don't.

Felt it necessary to ban The Onion . BEP must be a former student.

And, Fox isn't credible. Good for him.

I find it completely understandable that a journalism professor would refuse to accept data from an entertainment source. I would imagine that he is trying to teach his students how to be journalists. There should be some other course that they can take within the creative writing field where they could use sources like TMZ, Entertainment Tonight and Fox News.

Don't justify this crap.

I hate Fox News. I think it's biased journalism. But don't try to treat this as anything more than a douche bag Professor trying to inject politics onto a classroom. If she had such a problem with Fox News, she would specifically call out MSNBC and Huffington Post here.

A classroom should be an unbiased place. The fact that grades are going to be determined more than likely based on agreement with her political position, is ****ed up.

Fox "News"
