Mo. Instructor Cleared in Labor Video Controversy
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Officials at the University of Missouri-St. Louis say an instructor seen on a controversial video discussing union practices did nothing wrong and will be able to return to the
classroom. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the school sent a letter Monday to faculty and staff saying an investigation cleared instructor Don Giljum of any wrongdoing. Video clips on conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart's website purported to show Giljum and Missouri-Kansas City professor Judy Ancel endorsing violence as a union tactic. Missouri-St. Louis officials said the video took comments made by both instructors out of context and distorted their meaning through editing from different times and classes. Missouri-Kansas City officials had already said they stood behind Ancel.
