Re: the Jan. 11 guest column "Professors are purveyors of objective thinking, not fake news."

Albrecht Classen writes "It is true that a majority of professors today leans left,... obviously because they are learned, have studied the issues carefully, and have reached their understanding by meticulously evaluating all sides to an issue."

With this stunningly arrogant comment, Albrecht Classen becomes the poster child for academic snobbery. According to him, his leftist positions are the only possible ones to arise from careful study and meticulous evaluation.

And he wonders why left wing academics are held in such contempt by open-minded adults.
