How do we arm students with the knowledge to challenge liberal professors? On this episode of The Vault, Glenn is joined by Tim Barton of Wallbuilders, who recounts a college student reaching out to him after a professor claimed the Founders were raging alcoholics who got plastered two days before signing the Constitution. The professor's source: The Huffington Post. Watch Glenn and Tim dissect the HuffPo article, which chronicles the drinking habits of John Adams and Thomas Jefferson, and teach students how to handle outrageous and false claims in the classroom.
Watch the video for a sneak peek and answers to these clarifying questions:
• Were the Founding Fathers raging alcoholics?
• Does the Huffington Post article count as an original source?
• Who should have to prove their point --- the person making the claim or the person questioning the claim?
