ST. LOUIS — Officials at the University of Missouri-St. Louis say an instructor seen on a controversial video discussing union practices did nothing wrong and will be able to return to the classroom.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the school sent a letter Monday to faculty and staff saying an investigation cleared instructor Don Giljum of any wrongdoing.
Video clips on conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart's website purported to show Giljum and Missouri-Kansas City professor Judy Ancel endorsing violence as a union tactic.
UMSL officials said the video took comments made by both instructors out of context and distorted their meaning through editing from different times and classes.
UMKC officials had already said they stood behind Ancel.
