A small contradiction in UWM’s course offerings

UWM teaches elementary logic and other such logic classes.

Logic is a very good tool for turning the hollow arguments of right-wing squakers on their heads.

UWM also teaches journalism.

You need to take a class in formal reasoning in order to graduate with a journalism degree.

Jessica McBride is a non-tenured journalism instructor at UWM and a known right-wing squaker.

Therefore, a UWM journalism major taking Philosophy 211 or another course in reasoning and logic can turn Jessica McBride’s arguments on their heads.

Logic is a beautiful thing.

*** UPDATE *** UWM’s journalistic ethics instructor had an affair with Milwaukee Police Chief Edward Flynn. We do not want UWM’s staff to be teaching by example such as this. It’s time for her to go.
