Adults Take Control of My State's University

From Instapundit:
PUSHBACK: Missouri legislators to Mizzou: Fire professor who tried to “muscle” reporter. “Legit sanction for abuse of authority, or an infringement on academic freedom? Missouri state legislators want Melissa Click canned for her actions in a protest at the University of Missouri, in which she threatened a student journalist by calling for ‘some muscle’ when he insisted on covering the demonstration. The letter sent to Mizzou has the signatures of a majority in both chambers of the state’s assembly.
I’m not sure how it will turn out, but it’s definitely sent a message, one that I suspect will be reinforced at budget time. As Ed Morrissey writes:
“I suspect Mizzou’s going to feel a lot of adultism in the coming months, most of it directed at the supposed adults in charge. And they will deserve every bit of it.”

I think a substantial budget hit would be well deserved.

There's a more fitting name for her: Melissa Clickbait. And even if she gets fired, she can still earn a living by being a professional victim.
