The "Liberal" Academy

Another part of this is that most of the supposedly ultra-liberal institutions in society - Hollywood, Academia, Journalism - are hardly that. The professors themselves are not all that liberal, especially in the sciences and of course in departments where the money largely is, but more than that the professors don't run the place. Tenured profs do have a level of job security and a certain kind of freedom alien to most people, but that doesn't mean they're management.
