We're well shut of Lee Bollinger

Not that that has materially improved the intellectual diversity of the University of Michigan.  Still, Bollinger's recent plea to bail out print media, at least, won't be associated with UofM.

Via PajamasMedia and Frank J. Tipler: Columbia U.’s Bollinger Oblivious on MSM Bailout 

His argument is so obviously false that he himself, in his own article, cannot avoid providing the facts needed to refute it. For example, Bollinger writes:
There are examples of other institutions in the U.S. where state support does not translate into official control. The most compelling are our public universities

Apparently, Bollinger has no clue why Hillsdale College does not accept any money from the Feds. 

Bailing out any media is a violation of the First Amendment.
