While I applaud this documentary's attempt to address the problem of limited academic freedom, I was deeply disappointed to see that this film polarizes the issue. It simply isn't true that the conservative opinion is always silenced in academia and the liberal opinion is praised and encouraged. Depending upon the university, it can very easily be the other way around. In my experience of teaching at a Catholic university, I have seen students and faculty--both liberal and conservative--being silenced. So many factors cause this: the university administration, the university's religious and other affiliations, faculty who are intolerant of opinions other than their own, students who are equally intolerant, etc. This film fails to take into account that conservative students and faculty are not the only ones who can be limited in expressing their views. It also fails to consider the fact that many (maybe not the majority, but certainly a large number of) professors and students welcome constructive dialog within the campus community. It appears to me that this film has used a small handful of extreme cases of silencing within academia to create a largely unfounded argument that American universities are centers of liberal indoctrination. Issues of silencing and academic freedom need to be studied and addressed, but this documentary falls pitifully short of the objectivity it touts.
