The Sound of Silence
A reader points out the contrast between the media indifference to this scandal and the furor that erupted over a similar transgression involving a commencement address by Bryan Le Beau of the University of Missouri. The latter has swept over academia like a tsunami, picked up by the Chronicle of Higher Education and newspapers, while Khalidi has gotten no attention at all. Makes you wonder, this reader notes, what the media is afraid of. Good point.
