Berkeley reverses decision to nix speech by right-wing commentator

Berkeley reverses decision to nix speech by right-wing commentatorThe University of California at Berkeley on Thursday reversed its decision to cancel a talk by right-wing commentator Ann Coulter, offering a new date and venue for the event. University officials on Wednesday had defended their decision to scrap the firebrand pundit’s April 27 appearance at the famously progressive campus, citing security concerns and several recent political protests that had turned violent. Coulter had lashed out at the decision, saying it was an attack on free speech, and had vowed to defy the university and speak at the campus anyway on the scheduled date.
