Missouri Fires Professor

Standard

I told you I would keep you apprised of University of Missouri Prof. Melissa Click. The Univeristy’s Board of Curators fired her today, according to the Washington Post and USA Today.

Click shouted her way into the national spotlight last November when she sought to bar a student reporter from an outdoor, on-campus protest and to have him ejected by physical force. She yelled for some “muscle” to compel his departure.

The incident was caught on video, and the image of Click’s angry, glaring face pushing closer to the lens, shouting her demands, riveted viewers and readers alike.

Ironically, Click, 42, worked at Missouri’s Communications school and held an honorary appointment in the Journalism school, which was withdrawn after the incident.
