[VIDEO] Breitbart reporter says he faced discrimination at American University for conservative beliefs

An investigative journalist for the Breitbart News Network says he faced discrimination at American University, in Washington D.C., for his conservative beliefs.

Matt Boyle of Breitbart News told Campus Reform he faced discrimination for his conservative views while enrolled in college.

“The university professors actually on a regular basis... tried to intimidate me and they graded me on a different scale than everybody else. They held me to different standards than anybody else in the program because I was a conservative."

“The open liberals were not held to the same standard,” he alleged.  

The American University public relations department declined comment despite multiple requests from Campus Reform over the period of three days.  

Boyle, who worked for the The Daily Caller before joining Breitbart, has an undergraduate degree from Flagler College in St. Augustine, Fla. D.C. From early 2010 through late 2012, he worked at The Daily Caller before moving to Breitbart News.
