Ivy uproar

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 03, 2006

Journalists are pouring out the stories about charges of scholarly misconduct at an Ivy League school.

What, you mean the CWN story showing that a tenured professor at Princeton deliberately doctored the historical record to support her own thesis in an influential scholarly book?

No, the story about a Harvard sophomore who copied passages from a popular novel.

The downfall of an aspiring teen novelist makes for good copy, and well over 500 headlines turned up on one quick internet search. But what about the influential professor who won awards and fellowships, and influenced the thoughts of countless readers, with a book that contains fabricated material?

Silence.
