Let It Rip: The Issue of Free Speech

Posted:

SOUTHFIELD, Mich. (WJBK) -- This week on "Let It Rip", we tackle the issue of free speech. An Oakland University student is suspended after writing about his attraction to his female professor.

"I'll never learn a thing -- tall, blonde, stacked, skirt, heels, fingernails, smart, articulate, smile," Joseph Corlett said in his writings.

Was he just being creative or did he take his assignment too far?

Plus, Michigan has become a political battleground in the GOP presidential race. We explore why Rick Santorum is surging to the lead in Mitt Romney's home state.

Joining Huel Perkins and Charlie Langton on our panels to discuss these topics are Corlett, Detroit News columnist Laura Berman and author Elizabeth Atkins, as well as Glenn Clark, president of the Michigan Faith and Freedom Coalition, attorney Tracey Henry and state Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer.
