The Associated Press recently wrote a story about a student who is arguing that a popular college textbook on American government is conservatively biased. According to the story, the student’s claim — which argued the accuracy on some of the book’s claims about global warming and prayer in school — caught the attention of think tank Center for Inquiry.
The book in question is American Government: Institutions and Policies, and is written by James Q. Wilson and John J. Dilulio Jr., both “well-known conservatives,” according to the article. It is currently being used as an American government textbook at MU.
