Dear Friend of America's Survival, Inc.:

Reed Irvine, founder of Accuracy in Media, understood that liberal media bias stems from how journalists are trained in our colleges and universities. That is one reason why we are holding a "Communism in the Classroom" conference in Washington, D.C. on August 20.

In advance of this event, we have asked Illinois Governor Quinn to open an investigation into how communist Bill Ayers became a "Distinguished Professor" at the University of Illinois. You can read the letter here.

It is important to note that the University of Illinois is already being investigated for a secret or shadow admissions policy, which accepted students based on their financial or political connections. Is there any reason to doubt that Ayers got his teaching job because of his father, Thomas Ayers?

Thomas Ayers had enormous clout in Chicago. He was CEO of Commonwealth Edison as well as a trustee of the Tribune Co. and chairman of the board of Northwestern University, where Ayers' wife Bernardine Dohrn got a teaching job. What role did he play in getting his communist son a job at the University of Illinois?"

In connection with her investigation of Ayers, Professor Mary Grabar has written a short op-ed on what we know about his teaching methods. You can read that here on our website. She will have much more to report at our August 20 conference.

We will soon be launching a national Internet advertising campaign for our conference.

Remember: You are invited to this conference. It's free of charge. But you must have the details. It's all there - at

For America's Survival, Inc.,


Cliff Kincaid, President
