The censorship and purging of critics of Zionism is a longstanding phenomenon in US academia. And a recent incident with Ken Roth shows even the mildest criticism of Israel can have professional repercussions. The former executive director of Human Rights Watch was recently denied a fellowship at the Harvard Kennedy School in a widely publicized scandal.

Ken Roth joins The Marc Steiner Show to discuss his ordeal.
