A prof. in West Virginia is causing some controversy after she reportedly issued a syllabus that filtered student’s research options and banning citing Fox News, according to WTOV.

The syllabus tells students in the teacher’s political science course at West Liberty University political science course what sources they can and can’t use. One of those sources is Fox News.

In the syllabus, the professor allegedly says, “The tagline Fox News makes me cringe.”

“One of our values at West Liberty is to encourage students to go out and inquire and gather information and look at as many different sources as possible on any side, before you reach your opinion,” Robin Capehart, president of West Liberty University, told WTOV.

Parents claim it is unfair to the students to encourage some sources which lean in one direction politically, while discouraging those going in the other direction.
