Professors in Denial? Deny that Universities are Hubs of Liberal Indoctrination

From Campus Reform, where pollster Frank Luntz lamented how Millennials have been indoctrinated by liberal college professors:

However, some academics have countered the claim that indoctrination is a widespread phenomenon at universities.

“Luntz doesn’t have his facts straight,” Neil Gross, Charles A. Dana Professor of Sociology at Colby College, told Inside Higher Ed. “Young Americans are leaning to the left these days, but it has very little to do with what they’re being taught by college professors.”

Joshua M Dunn, a political science professor at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs and author of Passing on the Right: Conservative Professors in the Liberal University, says “ham-fisted efforts” at indoctrination usually don’t work because they are too transparent.
