This college just hired a fake news journalist to teach a course on something that will make you furious

America’s colleges and universities have been taken hostage by left-wing radicals.

Campuses become so hostile to conservatives that President Trump had to sign an Executive Order to remind them about the First Amendment.

But one college just did the unthinkable.

New York University recently hired Talia Lavin to teach students.

Lavin was formally a “fact checker” for The New Yorker where she made up outrageous stories and was caught lying on multiple occasions.

In one instance, Lavin claimed that a disabled veteran and ICE agent had a Nazi tattoo.

The man was “doxed” and harassed by the left-wing Twitter mob.

But it was an outright lie.

She was even forced to resign in disgrace.

Now, she’s been hired to teach a course called, “Reporting on the Far Right.”

The College Fix reports:

A writer recently hired to teach journalism at New York University is at the center of an online firestorm. Media figures have criticized the school’s decision to hire the journalist in part because of a controversy last year in which she falsely accused a federal agent of sporting a Nazi tattoo.

Talia Lavin, described by the university as a writer and researcher “focused on far-right extremism and social justice,” will teach a course titled “Reporting on the Far Right” this fall.

According to the school’s undergraduate journalism course list, the class “will provide student journalists with a thorough grounding in far-right and white-supremacist movements in the United States, briefly examining their history and delving into their sprawling present incarnations.”

New York University should be ashamed of themselves for hiring such an unethical and dishonest journalist to teach a “journalism” course.

Nevermind the fact that they’re handing out credits for such an obviously biased course.

The entire state of so-called “higher” education is in shambles.

Academia has traded true education for so-called “social justice.”

Colleges have become indoctrination centers for the left to produce more Democrat voters.

And parents are becoming increasingly aware of how little education their children are being exposed to.

Would you send your child or grandchild to New York University to take a “journalism” class from a proven peddler of fake news?

  1. This is why our country is in such horrible shape. People in positions that should not be. IDIOTS who can not report on the truth without being bias.

    • WHEN THE FAR LEFT RUNS OUT OF RACIST SUPPLY JUST CALL JUSSIE OR THIS RACIST AND THE FAKE RACISM WILL COME BACK TI LIFE.THATS ALK THEY HAVE LEFT NOW

      • IM SURE THIS HIRING CAME AFTER A NATION WIDE SEARCH FOR THE BEST POSSIBLE!!!LOK.NOPE.FIND A LIBERAL BLACK LYING RACIST!

  2. She made a mistake. She didn’t start the story and when she found out it wasn’t true, she immediately deleted the story and posted a retraction. There is a reason there are erasers on pencils, no one is perfect. Stop the hatred on one error. When you have never made a mistake, then you can attack her, otherwise remember WWJD.

    • Kaci?

      Do you remember that original thought you had last year?

      ANY original thought, regardless of when?

      Didn’t think so.

    • >>>> You asked WWJD do?

      Do you mean “What would Jesus do?” Or “What would Judas do?”

    • Mistake ???? My a$$. A case of shoddy reporting– Don’t check before reporting. As long as there is a reaction and one gets her or his name in the paper. As for NYU- par for the course as the leading leftist instituion.

    • Kaci, That was her JOB. Get it right! Her responsibility! I hope if you need surgery, you get a surgeon who checks and double checks and does their job, not says, oops, sorry it was a mistake after the fact. Your response is ridiculous and irresponsible, just like this so called “fact checker” and this so called University hiring an incompetent to teach. It is now the responsibility of the students and their parents to be sure they have facilty that is compentent and caring or they should find another university to attend. After all, it is their future!

    • AND KACI YOU ARE PART IF THE PROBLEM.LIOK IN THE MIRROR AND I BET YOU SEE A LIBERAL RACIST LOOKING RIGHT BACK AT YOU

    • LOL, WWJD……rich coming from the looney tune atheist! This thing purposely pushed a fake story and is now in charge of peddling false narrative to informative students. Now this other thing KS is peddling a “she made a mistake” BS.

      • Oh, you can only think about WWJD if it is from another Christian? LOL Too funny.

        I’m not peddling it. She is not peddling it. The New Yorker stated it. It is a fact that they have fact checked and proven.

        When was the last time you made a mistake? How would you feel if the whole world knew about it? How would you feel if they judged you unjustly? Now try and be a good Christian and stop judging other people.

    • Kaci, what part of “she made up outrageous stories and was caught lying on multiple occasions!” did you not understand in the article you just commented on here?

      • So what are the other made up stories? I could only find the one about the tattoo. If there is more, please enlighten me.

        • Your all missing the big picture here. Why in the hell does she have a position to start with? There should not be a course called how to report on the far right! How about how to report the truth without putting your personal beliefs into the story!

  3. The Nazi people are not evil or bad, it was Adolf Hitler who caused the holocaust to the Jewish people not the country plus the swastica symbol was originally a tribal symbol used by the Native Americans and the samurai ronin warriors

      • He is only 1/2 wrong. The Swastica’s origins go way back to the sun worship of the Aryan people of the far east , also the Sumerians and Babylonians and the Vikings had it as part of their rune alphabet. Since Hitler deemed the German people to be descendents of the Aryans [ wrongly ] he thought that the Swastica was a proper symbol.
        As to the rest of Michael’s comments : as a German i say that there is no excuse for the holocast.

  4. Hey Joe M you are right idiots shouldn’t be in certain positions even though they are elected.Even voters make mistakes;I just hope we think twice before making the same mistakes over again.

  5. Well New York is a liberal state, and that’s what they do. They hire people who are good at spreading lies, and hatred! There ought to be a wall built around New York and California!

  6. WHY, WOULD A PARENT PAY ALL THAT MONEY, FOR YOUR CHILD TO GET NO EDUCATION? SCHOOLS, ARE NOTHING BUT USED FOR PROPAGANDA. PEOPLE, WOULD RATHER HEAR LIES THAN THE TRUTH. THE MEDIA, REPORTS NOTHING BUT HATRED AND LIES. GOD BLESS AMERICA ❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

    • Yes, New York University is a POS university. I sent my kid there, so I know 1st hand. It was the worst decision of my life. NYU is all foreign Globalist propaganda, a huge waste of money. They did not provide any useful courses resulting in a good job. Avoid NYU at all costs!!!!

  7. Kaci, Jesus would say, “Go, and sin no more.” I have been reading your comments over the last several days. You say you used to teach Sunday School. I am wondering where you went to church, and what changed your mind to leave. You don’t want to be preached to, and that is why you left the church. When you comment on sites such as these, Jesus is bringing the preaching to you, since you think you can avoid preaching by not going to church. I believe you are one of the lost sheep Jesus is referring to, and He’s seeking to bring you back into His fold. Your comments prompt me to pray for you.

  8. Can you “just” leave out the word “just” from your titles? All these “just” unnecessary “justs” are “just” very annoying.

  9. Are you kidding me putting this crap into the minds of people wanting to learn the truth in Journalism is an outright crime. This Miss Lavin must have a Nazi Symbol on her arm or someplace inconspicuous. Fake news of all things to teach, lies, lies and more lies when will the moral majority stand up for their rights? The parents should remove their kids from this college and find them a better school where seeking the truth is the main objective. But then again who say’s the parent’s are so left wind that they approve of this. It sure is a slippery slope for sure.

  10. If this is true, it is a simple fix! Pass the word to parents that have college age kids to boycott New York University. Parents need to be educated as to what is going on at colleges that have turned themselves into indoctrination centers. Just saying…

  11. Just watched a YT video of Roughnecks working on drill rigs, not the hollywood glorified version, the real life version. Some ignorant individuals were making comments about never working in that very hostile inviroment, and what they were doing. Welcome to the REAL world, I wonder how her classes can be applied in REAL life ?
    MAGA !

  12. Colleges have become INDOCTRINATION CENTERS! I know I paid to have two children indoctrinated! One child did not want to go college I think he made a wise decision He thinks for himself and truly is a free man

  13. I attended NYU for a year about 1953. Took a course in non-fiction writing. I was the only REP in the class, but all students were congenial. Instructor insisted the NY Times did not publish the truth. For truth we were required to read the Daily Worker. Each had to write a 1,000-word factual final piece with each fact identified by a reliable source reference. My thoroughly researched piece disagreed fairly respectfully with his media insistence. Several students liked my piece because it gave them a different view to ponder.

    The instructor returned all pieces with a grade and his comments. On mine he placed a large “F” with explanation that he was not capable of judging my crazy ideas. So “F” was my final grade in 1953. What’s new?

  14. Not to worry. At least we KNOW ABOUT the situation now and a dozen conservative REAL journalist will be on the look out 24/7. Besides, what has old Madcow and others been doing for the last decade ??? Her ‘legacy’ precedes her this time.

  15. Why are conservative businessmen and philanthropists still giving money to these universities. They spit at conservatives but beg for their money. Stop writing checks to these sewer pits that have forgotten what America is all about – individual freedom and equal opportunity. Not equal outcomes.
