Suspended DePaul professor gagged and bound at news conference (Theresa Gutierrez
March 1, 2005, ABC)

A dispute over censorship inspired a DePaul University professor to show up at his own press conference bound and gagged.

Last fall, DePaul University professor Thomas Klocek was suspended without a hearing for challenging the viewpoints of certain Muslim students on campus at a student activities fair. He is now demanding a public apology from the university president in order to avoid litigation.

Klocek showed up to the news conference bound and gagged, illustrating what he believes the university did to him by censoring his views on the Middle East. Klocek says he was unfairly suspended for his views on the Muslim and Palestinian people.

How many professors that you had in school would you untie?

Suspended without a hearing? That's some AAUP chapter they have there. He gets suspended but Holocaust denier Norman Finkelstein is still on the law school faculty. Go figure?
