  1. How is everybody getting the recording from the zoom class meeting? KTLA-5 won’t say how they obtained it. The Families Educational Rights and Privacy Act prohibits recording of classrooms. Zoom meetings are telecommunications like telephone calls. If that law weren’t enough, California is an all-party consent state. All parties must consent to the recording of telephone calls. I would imagine this goes for zoom calls, too. And, yet, the video is all over the place. KTLA-5’s only comment was it was given to them when asked if they knew it was illegal to record Zoom meetings. Cypress College didn’t seem to be too aware, either.

    • Calls are typically recorded for students who aren’t able to attend or so those who did attend can review what was discussed after the call. Calm down, no conspiracy here.


    • Any learning institution that is taxpayer funded in any form should be required by law to post live and recorded video of all class meetings so that parents and taxpayers have the unfiltered opportunity to see exactly what is being taught to their children or with their tax dollars. Our right to know easily supersedes the right to privacy, especially that of the teacher or instructor.


    • They got the video from the teachers own video archive which she makes available to everyone. SHE recorded it and students sign a waiver of acknowledgement and permission. Nothing illegal or manipulated. As far as Cypress College not being aware. They have a policy of not I terferring with an instructors syllabus or personal policy.


  2. How can Farhya Salim’s home address be exposed here for people to confront her for her hatred of a country that saved her from her 3rd world shithole country?


    • So you want her information so you can persecute her because you don’t like her beliefs? Good god. Meet the new country, same as the old country!

  4. She should go find a new country to settle in. Obviously she hates America and wants to bring in her sharia law. Word of advice bitch, go to another developed country with your ideologies and try that sh*t over there since you’re so oppressed here.

    -Said by a “minority”


  5. Do you think for a Minute she expressed this rage against this nation when applying for asylum from Egypt?? This trash mouth talking cunt deserves to be deported bc she’s proven to be an enemy of the United states, not someone whose encouraging civil dialogue.. Bitch deserves to be hunted down and ????.
