Paul Krugman on the attempt to silence Willian Cronon

New York Times columnist, Paul Krugman, entered into the controversy surrounding the President of the American Historical Association and University of Wisconsin history professor, William Cronon.  Cronon wrote an article in the Times critical of the Wisconsin Governor Walker and his support for a bill to eliminate collective bargaining rights for public school teachers.  The Republican party in Wisconsin has responded by using Freedom of Information laws to request all of Professor Cronon’s university emails.
