NY Times: "Harvard missed chance to choose a #MeToo or BLM leader as its new pres ." Really? As successor to its retiring female pres? Identity politics at worst... on the news pages. Reporter's own view, not even a cited quote. Journalism at its worst.  https://www.nysun.com/national/harvards-new-president-finds-a-teaching-moment/90196/#.WosCPgv6wNc.twitter
