Everyone Hates Ladner
The Post had an article and live discussion with AU Prez Benjamin Ladner today: American University Controversy
I’ve seen a lot of live discussions with people, especially after a scandal breaks out that may or may not be related to the reason for the Wash Post chat, but never before have I seen an intervention from the discussion maintainer like the following:
washingtonpost.com: Dr. Ladner, as producer of this discussion I must tell you that several readers are writing in criticizing you for not answering any of the hardball questions. If I may, I would like to ask you three questions…
Having been a submitter of hardball questions to people in the past only to have them ignored, I’m glad someone at the Post has a pair and would call the interviewee on the carpet.
