Melissa Click is biggest hypocrite in Missouri protest
Melissa Click may just be the biggest hypocrite in the entire Missouri student protest.
Click is an assistant professor in communications at Missouri, who brands herself on Twitter as a feminist media scholar. She has become known for being one of the people associated with the protest who bullied the video person who recorded student journalist Tim Tai, who was trying to cover the protest Monday with photos.
At the end of a video posted to YouTube Monday that has gone viral, Click is heard yelling that she needs some “muscle” to help her drive out the a media member who was recording the protest on video:
Not only was she encouraging students to block a reporter’s first amendment rights, but this is the same woman who days earlier wanted the media’s help in publicizing the story:

Wait, so you want the media’s assistance in spreading your message, but then you want to assault and accost reporters when you don’t want them around? What a hypocrite.
The student group may have some objectives, but their behavior displayed in the video is insulting, and the faculty members leading and assisting the protest need to reexamine what they are doing and why.
