Support Academic Freedom: Prof. James Tracy Fired for his Writings on the Sandy Hook School Event

Dr. James Tracy was a highly regarded professor of media studies who’s job it was to critically analyze the media reporting of significant events. For unknown reasons, personally sharing honest analysis of the Sandy Hook event triggered a media attack on Dr. Tracy.

The media began to pressure the university in which he was a tenured professor and labeled him the ‘Conspiracy Professor.’

Shockingly, Professor Tracy was fired from Florida Atlantic University on January, 6th of this year.

If left unchallenged, these unjust actions are surely not the last to expect for America. Therefore, a group of concerned citizens and fellow scholars have established and incorporated the James Tracy Legal Defense Fund.
