Associate Prof. Ed Bridgeman is what they call an 'expert'.

God help the students.
Bridgeman says the AR-15 is the type of weapon that can do the most damage and be purchased legally in the U.S....
The AR-15 is known for its destruction, not accuracy, Bridgeman said.
"It's not a good sniper weapon but good for laying down a lot of fire down range," Bridgeman said.
and the brilliance of
"Put the magazine in, pull the charging hammer and you're ready to go,"  Bridgeman said.
What the HELL is a 'charging hammer', Bridgeman?

Borrowing from Mr. Williamsons' comment,
As an expert, can you explain the discrepancy and error? May I quote you as a source to update these articles?

Also, the AR10 and M1A seem to fire a .308 bullet that's twice as powerful as the .223, but at about the same rate. There are also several Remington hunting rifles that fire even more powerful .30-06s in semiauto.
Can you explain the discrepancy? For reference purposes, can you please furnish your credentials and professional education history in regards to rifles? Any military experience, shooting schools, or tactical courses would be appreciated.

It is questionable saying that the 30-06 is more powerful than the 308. There are so many loading combinations for these two rounds that there is quite a bit of overlap. One is not inherently better or more "powerful" than the other. The lore tells us that the 308 was developed from the 30-06 as it's base, and made shorter because a new powder could fit the same push in a smaller case.

But today there is a nearly limitless combination of powders, charge weights, and bullet weights and styles for both cartridges.

General rule is they're equivalent up to 180-grain bullets; .30-06 can handle heavier stuff, .308 can't, so in the overall .30-06 wins.
