“My writing style or sources didn’t change at all”
Does anyone doubt that this really happened?

A’s for liberal papers only: A conservative’s college experience
Leah Keller, a graduating senior at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pa., is only now choosing to speak out about her early experiences as a conservative on campus, 3 1/2 years later.
Keller told Red Alert Politics in a phone interview about a freshman year history course for which she was assigned a paper on Dwight D. Eisenhower. After writing a favorable portrayal of the former Republican president, Keller received a C grade and a suggestion that she see her professor.
“The professor said that I should reread the articles because ‘my opinion of Eisenhower might change,’” Keller said. “What was implied was that I didn’t write the opinion that he wanted or was expecting to see.”
Her professor allowed her to rewrite the paper, and she did so, giving a more negative portrayal of Eisenhower than she had done before.
“My writing style or sources didn’t change at all,” Keller noted, “just my opinion of Eisenhower.”
After resubmitting the paper, she earned an A minus and says she “stopped making my opinions clear to my professors.”
