My first response to the sleazy New Yorker hit piece by Jane Mayer on Art Pope (and spilling over onto the Pope Center) drew a reply from John Wilson on the AAUP’s blog. In today’s Pope Center piece,  I answer Wilson’s arguments that we are intent on “buying the curriculum,” imposing “ideological control,” and on subverting “academic freedom.” None of that is true. On the other hand, I maintain that if you want to find people intent on imposing ideological control but who don’t concern themselves at all with the academic integrity of colleges and universities, look no further than the mass of the professiorate.
