Academic bias

From the website of Wheeling Jesuit University, via the Libertarian Alliance Forum. First two paragraphs:

A Wheeling Jesuit University business professor is using the book Atlas Shrugged to help MBA and undergraduate business students better understand the philosophical concepts and the moral aspects of today's business world.

Edward Younkins, professor of accountancy and business administration and author of the book Capitalism and Commerce: Conceptual Foundation of Free Enterprise, incorporates Ayn Rand's book, Atlas Shrugged, into his Conceptual Foundations of Business course to give students practical business examples. Younkins explains that students take turns leading discussions on all 30 chapters of Rand's 1,075-page novel. Of course, the professor takes part when necessary to make certain that key ideas are discussed.

But of course.
