Academic freedom straw men?

9 12 2009

From the Chronicle of Higher Ed (subs.):

Because academic freedom is specifically intended to foster the free exchange of ideas within a community of scholars, it does not protect us from other types of utterances and behavior, such as slander or libel, bullying co-workers, lying on a curriculum vitae, or conducting one’s classes in irresponsible ways.

Does anybody who actually works at an American Institution think that those activities are protected and if so why do they still work there?
