COHAN'S THE PRICE OF SILENCE and THE PRICE OF SUPPRESSION OF THE TRUTH IN THE CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION
THE PRICE OF SILENCE--how much Duke is paying for staying silent (or speaking out accusatorily) when students were enduring an egregious case of prosecutorial abuse) or else how much Duke payed to delay the lawsuits so it could keep Brodhead's emails secret (even while, just recently, demanding the notes on his interviews from KC Johnson)?
THE DUKE LACROSSE SCANDAL--what was really scandalous about it--the behavior of the President of the University, the professors (particularly the Gang of 88), the nurse, the police, the DA etc.?
THE POWER OF THE ELITE--this should have been about the power of the Gang of 88 not to be punished (and the power of Baker to go on to Vanderbilt!), the power of Brodhead to be retained in 2007, the power of Nifong to get away with only one night in jail etc, the power of Duke's lawyers to delay delay delay the lawsuits etc (I am not trying to be exhaustive), and now in 2014 the power of the elite in the mainstream media to puff Cohan’s book by fawning reviews and interviews.
THE CORRUPTION OF OUR GREAT UNIVERSITIES--Brodhead's forcing out the coach, Mike Pressler, and throwing the lacrosse team to the wolves, the triumph of the Gang of 88, the grading according to Political Correctness, the subsequent sexual scandals in the months and years after 2006.
If Tesla can shame the New York TIMES into an apology over its review of Tesla's Model S sedan, can I shame the CHRONICLE OF HIGHER EDUCATION into printing an honest paragraph in place of the fabricated 2nd paragraph?
