The Trouble With Karen
Project on WAMC features an extended discussion of the Karen
Hitchcock matter. A February 25 article in the New York Times
reported that Hitchcock was under investigation by the State Ethics Commission
when she left her post as president of UAlbany; citing unnamed sources,
the story suggested Hitchcock hastened her departure to avoid the probe.
Dr. Hitchcock, who now heads Queens
University in Ontario, has denied any wrongdoing.
calling Hitchcock the "finest university president he ever served under,"
the New York Times article as tainted by sources with an agenda, describing
their story a "smear".
thing is sticky. We now live in a world where rumors and innuendo
available everywhere, anytime ---and it's possible to build a search
engine mythology for anyone you choose. Add a story in The Times
and you change someone's personal history forever.
