UC San Diego: University of Porn

UC San Diego is a wonderful university that is allowing its reputation to be deeply tarnished by a handful of students and the moral cowardice of its Administration.

A student made a hard core porn movie starring himself and a porn actress. Then he submitted it to student run television at UCSD, and it played. Fierce objections were made. One of my listeners forwarded the response she receievd from the UCSD Chancellor:

Ms. P____

I appreciate your message and share your disappointment that the Student-Run Television (SRTV) is being used for this kind of programming. I, too, am disappointed that a very small number of students have chosen to express themselves in this way. SRTV programs are developed and produced by and for UC San Diego students. Over the years, SRTV programming has focused on a variety of campus events and activities, thus supporting our educational mission.

We are currently investigating whether or not this programming is in violation of FCC regulations, the SRTV charter, or campus policies and procedures. We also have encouraged students who are disappointed and concerned about the programming to provide feedback to the Associated Students, which funds SRTV.

Ms. P____, UC San Diego is home to exceptional students who are serious about their studies. I am proud to serve as Chancellor as I see the many talented students every day on our campus.

Thank you for taking the time to write and for allowing me to respond.

Marye Anne Fox

The Chancellor of a great university is unable to summon the moral vocabulary much less courage to forbid the showing of a hard core porn –this is the state of American higher education.

By the way, a listener points me to this announcement of an upcoming speaker at UCSD –Anita Hill.
