“This has absolutely nothing to do with ‘conservative media outlets’, and I am at a complete loss as to why you are jumping to that conclusion”
The professor doesn’t seem to have a problem with sources like CNN or MSNBC. This is a window into the minds of many people on the left. They don’t even see their own biases.

UGeorgia Science Prof Bans Students From Using Fox News As Source
An ecology professor at the University of Georgia banned his students from using Fox News as a source, according to a screenshot obtained exclusively through Young America’s Foundation’s Campus Bias Tip Line.
Scott Connelly informed his introductory ecology class that they were only to use “reliable news sources” for an upcoming assignment, citing CNN and the New York Times as examples.
“Please do not draw from questionable sources such as National Inquirer, Fox News, OAN, blogs, etc,” Connelly wrote.
The assignment asked students to find a news story related to technological developments in sustainable energy.
When contacted for comment by YAF over email, Connelly doubled down after being questioned over his ideological bias playing a role in the assignment.
“This has absolutely nothing to do with ‘conservative media outlets’, and I am at a complete loss as to why you are jumping to that conclusion,” Connelly wrote in an email. “This has to do with scientifically accurate news pieces that focus on the topic we are studying… it will be much easier to complete the assignment in a reasonable amount of time if students start with the reliable news organizations that I suggested, which have run countless articles that are scientifically factually correct and also address the topic we are studying.”
