Press neglect of Chomsky talks perplexing

I have been watching for reactions from the Arizona Jewish Post about Noam Chomsky’s well-attended appearances at the University of Arizona.

I attended both of his lectures and was impressed with the large crowds … completely filled halls for his lectures on language and education. Dr. Chomsky was introduced as one of the most cited intellectuals in the world according to the New York Times.

I am surprised at the lack of response to his presentations by the Tucson press but especially that the Jewish Post would not inform the Jewish community about the nature of his lectures, his standing ovations, the enthusiastic responses of his audiences and the nature of the question period that included so many young people.
