We now agree that Ms. Riley’s blog posting did not meet The Chronicle’s basic editorial standards for reporting and fairness in opinion articles. As a result, we have asked Ms. Riley to leave the Brainstorm blog.
Good for the Chronicle for taking a stand on this issue. Sure, it took some level of mobilization in the academic world, and the Chronicle did originally provide Schaefer Riley to spew out this article. But the fact that the Chronicle moved at all is more than many media outlets would do.
