Report: Mitch Daniels sought 'cleanup' of 'propaganda' in college courses

Emails show that Mitch Daniels, as governor of Indiana, tried to censor college curriculum that he opposed, such as Howard Zinn's "A People's History of the United States." Daniels said of Zinn, "This terrible anti-American academic has finally passed away. ... [Zinn's book] is a truly execrable, anti-factual piece of disinformation that misstates American history on every page. ... [H]ow do we get rid of it before more young people are force-fed a totally false version of our history?" The book was being used in a course for teachers on Civil Rights, and Daniels approved a plan to "disqualify propaganda." I'm sure you're a nice place, Indiana, but it's things like this that put you down on my list of places I want to be.
