    As idiotic as this is, this doesn't come even close to being grounds to yank his tenure or take any other action against him or FAU.

      If he's lecturing his students with conspiracy theories and not with provable, supportable facts that pertain to the subject matter, I'd support FAU pulling his tenure.  If he's teaching a course called "Lies and the Lying Liars that tell them" or "News Reports in the Modern Era" where his curriculum includes more than that day's Fox News talking points, but actually challenges the assertions and gets the students to research into them and potentially refute them, well, I'd say it might be a worthwhile class.

      Given how the Kochs took over one of the Florida university's economics departments to the point where they could approve the curriculum and the professors, I'd have serious doubts about the quality of education at any Florida schools.
