Over here, we’ve been compiling media and blog coverage of Wagner’s “three-fifths” fiasco relatively quietly. The editor of STC@E is both overwhelmed and invigorated by the level of passion, insight, and wit that commentators across the country have brought to the table. But we will make a special occasion of noting that the faculty vote to censure the president made the New York Times‘s national briefing section, in both web and print editions. Look for an in-depth article about Wagner, race, and the department cuts in this Sunday’s paper. Yup, the Sunday Times.
We should also note that the reporter, Robbie Brown, was a journalism co-major at Emory (class of ’07). He currently works as the regional news assistant for the Southern bureau.
