Pardon Our Laughter

  • In a nontraditional move, officials at Northwestern University's prestigious journalism and communications school have decided not to renew the program's accreditation, letting the designation lapse.

    The dean of the Medill School of Journalism, Media, Integrated Marketing Communications said Monday that school officials chose not to pursue renewed accreditation, which provides outside approval of academic programs, because the process is "flawed" and not useful.

    Medill dean Bradley Hamm's strong rebuke is in contrast to what traditionally is viewed as a necessary process that gives students assurance that they will be attending quality programs that have undergone review.
Right. We totally believe that. This "quality program" of theirs helped free convicted killers, whored out female students to felons in prison, railroaded an innocent man, and will shortly cost the university tens of millions of dollars along with a sizable portion of Northwestern's academic reputation.

We don't know what passes for "quality" out in Evanston, but this wouldn't seem to meet the generally accepted standards. Let's face it - Northwestern didn't want any credential-issuing agency poking around their recent sordid past and discovering that turning journalism students into actual prostitutes (press-titutes?) isn't really what parents/students are looking for in a college education.

The university chose not to persue accreditation because the likelihood of it being granted was slim. Institutional suicide, I love it!

They don't need no stinking accreditation. They can rely on their fame and reputation.

Kudos to Bill Crawford and Marty Preib
for not letting this stay swept under the rug.

Hmmmm... Didn't Rahm al-Ghoul matriculate with
a master's in Communications?

Funny...
Nobody can seem to find his argumentation/defense
thesis as per the usual with a school like N.U.

It seems like N.U. is preparing for some giga-ton
level punitive.

Can't help but smile since these shit=asses
were at the forefront of the local war against
The Police.

Real justice would be some deans, professors
and some students sentenced to rot alive
in federal custody.

...Just like if they were Policemen.

"No mercy or pity. They knew better."

Right?

Citizen reader: Translation for you Medilldos: When your school journalism education program sucks, blame the rating process that examines and measures the program. This is an outgrowth of failing a test and blaming the poor teaching of the teacher for your failures.

I tried that in junior high school when grades started becoming important. Twice and each time got a slap on the side of the head as an attention grabber before a terse admonishment. The journalism faculty at Northwestern is to blame.

"The liberal mind is truly a diseased organ: In a nontraditional move, officials at Northwestern University's prestigious journalism and communications school have decided not to renew the program's accreditation, letting the designation lapse."

It pretty much sums up Whorethwestern University's 'prestigious journalism and communications school' right there in the opening paragraph.
According to the "Merriam Webster Dictionary-Since 1828," their '#1' definition for the word PRESTIGIOUS is... " 1 archaic: of, relating to, or marked by illusion, conjuring, or trickery"
Look it up!
I rest my case your honor.

Was Northwestern one of the institutes of higher learning that ex-prez Obama sent lots of tax payer dollars to? There needs to be an investigation of what conditions went with all that money Obama sent to these schools.
I think the demands that went with all that money would be very interesting to all the people that paid all that money. I just imagine a lowering of standards all around was one of the requirements. You know, so it wouldn't be so hard to get a college degree. College degrees should be harder to get than a participation award, but don't say that around democrats.

If they are not pursuing the accreditation it is for only 1 of two reason. First, they do not believe they will be accredited because of the terrible things they have done, the lies, falsehoods and frankly criminal behavior they engaged in. This is probably the main reason. Second, they may feel they can get the accreditation but accrediting bodies ask for a lot of information the school may not want shared.

For a school like Northwestern not to pursue this accreditation is just unthinkable, so you know there are some things they just don't want getting out. This gives even more credence to Martin Prieb and his fantastic work uncovering the criminal activity of the Innocence Project.

I thank the stars each day my kids have enough sense to follow the military path rather than the go into Deep (state) Debt to pay for "college" like this. My gosh how far we have indeed fallen as a society.

Democrats literally destroy Everything they touch, "education" as a prime example. Here is a thought - How about we Fight Back for a change? How about we take out campuses back, our streets, our state houses and yes our freakin police forces too?
Heck, maybe if our cops KNEW that We The People had their backs they would have the courage to put Corrupt Politicians (D) hands behind their backs and then give a ride AND a rap they can't beat.

We Americans can clean America up, we just have to realize that we actually have to do it ourselves, rather than set waiting for someone to do it for us. If we aren't going to do it with SCHOOL then each generation is only going to get worse. The only way to get it done int he schools it arrest those whoring out the students....in EVERY sense of that words....and putting them in JAIL. Cops are the KEY, cops are the core of the snowball rolling down hill, if we could just get em over the edge and on the move.

And at the other end of the spectrum is the NU Center for Public Safety - formerly the Traffic Institute. They have a solid reputation and according to several people who have gone to both the FBI National Academy and NU Center for Public Safety, the FBI program was much easier but you are away from your family.

Another sign in the ongoing decline of Chicago and surrounding suburbs. Take a look further north at Milwaukee, same story. Landmark restaurants closing, carjacking out of control, "urban youths" flash mobbing retail stores. Same infiltrate and destroy tactics, Section 8 housing into good neighborhoods, liberal policies that have a revolving door system and everyone else to blame but the perp.

But the real question is. Will preckwinkle realize it and learn that it won't increase revenue
But they didn't learn when they started the 10 cents a bottle tax in chicago for bottled water. Now most people go to the suburbs and buy the water there and also do grocery shopping , dept store shipping , buy gas while they are out there and maybe a bite to eat
Water bottle tax brought in very little revenue, not to mention all the other taxes on purchases that were made in the suburb
Will they learn, I doubt it. Preckwinkle will never say"I listened to the people and we will not enact the soda tax"

I'd like some disclosure on who approved the syllabus for the class in which the professor used an array of Black and Decker power tools to diddle naked students in what they described as a class on sexual instruction. For upwards of $60,000 tuition, those approving this should have been canned and the professors involved be required to register as sex offenders.

I know a number of folks in education...accreditation is make-or-break even for third-rate vocational programs. NWU is FUCKED, and the best part is that they did it to themselves. This is what's so great about 2016-2017, all the assholes are destroying themselves. It's amazing.

Northwestern U. Was originally chartered as a 'religious' university. Perhaps Bradley Hamm could show his charitable side by offering N.U. Grad Rod Blago a job. He and his 'socially concerned' students could also petition the President for Blago's immediate release. 'Praise the Lord and Pass the Petitions!'

Has a single reporter or politician in this city ever done the math of comparing wrongful convictions to rightful convictions?

The numbers are astounding at how many times the cops and prosecutors get it right vs. getting it wrong --It's about 36 shitbags released from Illinois prisons, since 2002.

That's it folks, 36.

Yet our "journalists" here wrote drama ridden stories where officers like you and I were torturing and beating convicts into submission, and that these tactics caused their confessions- that we're the one's out of control, and brutal racists.

Further on, the Chicago "journalists" wrote these as "Coerced Confessions", and they aided NU in their efforts by publishing stories in a prose of severely exaggerated innuendos, and within a racial context. - None of which was true, not one.

36 convictions overturned since 2002, compared to how many rightfully convicted.

The numbers are there media.

Go look.

Compare those numbers, and you'll find that the cops and prosecutors are doing a really good and honest job at their efforts.

36, since 2002...

Not to worry Snow Flakers, Liberals out of touch with reality, and S.J.W.'s University of Chicago's Mr Flufferman and WBEZ have picked up the torch for their comrades. Fuck they are so smart, selling their bomb thrower liberal bs solutions to everything. I didn't even get a chance to miss Protess and Ayers. I remember reading how Jeff Fort declared and listed in his BPS manifesto that the U Of C was the sole destructive entity in his neighborhood, impoverishing its people and forcing them out of their homes to expand the campus

You best check you white privilege Mr Flufferman!

The reality is that the MSM - Mainstream Media including Fox is imploding. The Journalism schools are pretty much Leftist Social Justice Warrior indoctrination centers.

The Murdoch Children taking over Fox are apparently purging Conservatives on bogus sexual harassment charges - Roger Ailes and Bill O"reilly taken down. O'Reilly's great crime was telling a Black Female working that she looked great - Chocolate something or other.

Remember Leftist Hollywood Director Roman Polanski has gotten away 100% for drugging and raping a young teenage girl - he's continued to make movies and have them favorably reviewed and widely distributed.

Any honest reporting on urban crime, immigration and real terrorism is now confined to blogs and what is termed the "Alt Right", Alt Lite.

This Alt Right, Alt Lite news and information world was instrumental in electing President Trump - but now the powers that be are even going after the Alt Right to take it down. Breitbart news has been neutered.

We live in terrifying times - and it's increasing not possible to flee to the suburbs or even move to the Pacific Northwest. Portland Oregon has mobs of Antifa Communist terrorists throwing molotov cocktails at the cops!

My (Middle class) Venezuelian girl friend says Chicago feels very much like Venezuela when Chavez came to power and the civilization collapse started.

I thinks folks here should meet and organize in the real world.

No one wants to attend a non-accredited program. Most employers won't even accept a degree from a non-accredited program because it's akin to getting a PhD from one of those spammer diploma mills... Completely insane.
