But, what about...?

University Diaries updates her post here: An Addendum to UD’s Post About Hillary Clinton and the University of Nevada Las Vegas.

UD also points to a Politico piece in it - and it is a good read...

but also see: Why I Left 60 Minutes piece there too-- the writer of that piece ends with:

Meanwhile, I now teach journalism at the American University School of Communication in Washington, and I am the founding executive editor of the Investigative Reporting Workshop, the largest university-based, nonprofit newsroom in the United States.


Note on that last page of that piece: his need to create a center -a space separate from the msm and separate from higher ed. His solution to make 'work-- work' seems to only include higher ed as an add-on...

Are universities the sanctuary from corruption? Are they the places where true journalism can occur? What about 'higher ed journalism'? Stories on higher ed?

BTW --why is everyone talking about HRC and hubby-- and not including Bill's speech in Abu Dhabi which is (yes, pointing to it once again) the very thing that started off this segment from Chris Hayes' investigative report?

If the money goes to CGI does that make it better, okay?

There's an update to that story, too, here: Labor Conditions at N.Y.U.’s Abu Dhabi Campus to Be Investigated by U.S. Firm (NYT 6/26/14) -H/t Remaking the University links list

Now UCLA Fac Blog is on to the HRC thing too- see: Some universities apparently can drive a harder bargain than UCLA
- true, UNLV drove a better bargain...

Of course, it isn't just HRC and Bill -- e.g. everyone's talkin' 'bout soccer - but including this part.
