Professor Watchlist website elicits both fear and ridicule in US universities - 2016-12-02
A website targeting university professors for spreading "leftwing propaganda" is raising fears of McCarthy-era tactics while also drawing ridicule.
The website first appeared on 21 November and includes 200 professors from across American universities. Professors are added to the list for a range of perceived offenses, that are sourced from media articles. The site also accepts tips from the public. Professor profiles include a picture of each academic and a description of why they have been added.
