    An English teacher at Denver’s Metropolitan State College is being investigated by the college for bias, bullying and harassment after he gave students in his class an assignment to “undermine” the Republican portrayal of vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.

    Metropolitan State College spokeswoman Cathy Lucas told that the college has not received a formal complaint against Andrew Hallam, a professor who asked students to write an essay that would contradict the portrayal of Sarah Palin’s life as a “fairy tale,” but the school is asking students who know more to come forward.

    “We strongly encourage the students to come forward if they felt they were bullied or harassed,” Lucas said. “We take all complaints seriously. For it to be a full investigation we really need to hear from the students.”

    What's the problem, he's just teaching the students to be objective. The liberals need more school trained bloggers. They need to get rid of that whistle blowing kid and give her a failing grade since she obviously didn't complete the assignment... :laugh:
