NYU Dean Of NYU Jack Knott Tells Mark Crispin Miller He Violated No Teaching Rules: Miller's Libel Suit Now Bolstered
What Was NYU Thinking?
“On Wednesday afternoon (12/8), I was informed by Jack Knott, Dean of NYU's Steinhardt School, that his office's "review" of my "conduct," carried out at the insistence of my department colleagues last October, finds that my teaching has not violated any of NYU's policies, and, therefore, that the university will take no further action in my "case" (as there isn't one).
This is, of course, good news; so it may be churlish of me to observe that, since they came to that conclusion in the spring, they might have let me know before this week.
In any case, this decision is a great relief, for two reasons.
First, I no longer have to worry that I might be harried any further by the university (over this matter, anyway); and, second, through this formal exculpation, NYU has, tacitly, disavowed my colleagues' slanderous petition to the dean back in October, 2020, demanding that he order that "review"—because, they argued, my "conduct" in the classroom had violated NYU policy. It was so egregious, they asserted, that it ought to nullify my academic freedom, so that I might be duly punished (i.e., fired): for my routine "hate speech," "attacks on students and others in our community," "aggressions and microaggressions," and other crimes that I have not committed, ever, at NYU or anywhere else.
It is because of those wild lies, and my colleagues' refusal to retract them (or even to reply to me about them), that I am suing them for libel. While we await the judge to rule on their motion to dismiss (filed back in February), I am encouraged that the university appears not to support their drive against me; and I continue to look forward to my vindication, as a victory for academic freedom and free speech.”
Mark Crispin Miller
We heartily congratulate Mark Crispin Miller (who has been a great friend and ally of The Truth Barrier) and look forward to his day in court, bringing, hopefully, his final vindication and compensation.

Kyle Rittenhouse was innocent on all counts. Jessie Smollett was guilty on all counts. Now we have the Dean of NYU having to admit he could find no wrongdoing in Miller’s classroom teaching, which is like saying: “We have concluded that no dogs speak Finnish.”
There was never anything to examine, study, or worry about. It was always a nothing-burger, a fit of covid era histrionics. Luckily, Miller fought back, thus raising the price of the lynching of every tenured university Professor who stays grounded in reality in the future. My own experience with a libel lawsuit taught me that getting the case before a jury can be tough. But even if, as in my case, it doesn’t make it that far, you’ve still raised the price of politically motivated globalist lynchings. I hope Jordan Peterson invites Mark Crispin Miller onto his show to discuss this. And Brett Weinstein. And every other academic who still hasn’t lost their mind. Like Peterson and Weinstein, the attackers only succeeded in making their hopeful victims household names with vast audiences.
Could this be the start of the death throes of the woke plague, that peddles lies, and ruins lives for political posturing?
Put me down as a “yes.”
And speaking of lynchings:
