A friend of mine is going back to college and needs some credits in political sciences. She decided to take “The United Nations”. You can see her options were pretty limited.
She showed me the book for that class today: An Insider’s Guide to the UN.
Here is what I’ve found in its acknowledgements page:
“…For their generous financial support, I’m very grateful to the UN Foundation … I also thank the Rockefeller Brothers Fund … In addition, I thank the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia. I also express appreciation to my friends and colleagues at the UN, NBC News, and National Public Radio …”
Now, this is the equivalent of having a global warming book sponsored by Exxon being used in a college class. A public sponsored college class nonetheless.
Of course, you won’t hear any complaints about this. Who would complain anyway? You have radio, TV, politicians and professors all glued together in a ready-to-be-absorbed educational package.
It is amazing to me that lefties are not yet dominating the US.
