Tomorrow’s tame press, at Morgan State today?

Morgan State University (Baltimore) journalism school dean DeWayne Wickham, writing in USA Today, wants to ditch freedom for religiously irreverent speech, by redefining it into the category of “fighting words.” In the course of arguing that French magazine Charlie Hebdo is unendurably disrespectful toward the founder of Islam, Wickham absurdly cites Sage of Baltimore H.L. Mencken, who spent most of his career being disrespectful in the extreme toward religion. More: Allahpundit.
