And as a professor at Fordham University in the Bronx and chair of the university’s department of communication and media studies, he’s used to challenging and getting strong responses from his students....

Actually, that's just the first paragraph.  You can find the whole interview on the White Plains Times web page, City People section - From Socrates to Science Fiction.
