University of Minnesota President

Contradicts Himself

Which is it, Mr. President?

(Hat Tip to Molly Priesmeyer!)

Time for some straight shooting and honest talk from President Bruininks?

U of M President Robert Bruininks said talk of delaying the "Troubled Waters" documentary, which he admits should have been handled and communicated differently, never threatened academic freedom. "That was never at risk and never at stake," he said.

But on the day before, he said just the opposite-

"As the facts surrounding the production of the film have become clearer, it was readily apparent to me that this is an issue of academic freedom; as a result, we immediately resolved to show it as planned."
