UNC chemistry professor: Smith and Willingham must alter approach

This letter was motivated by recent postings on paperclassinc.com/blog, a blog maintained by Jay Smith and Mary Willingham on “athletic reform.” As part of a drumroll to the release of their book, they published postings delineating why UNC can’t move on from our scandal, in which the last aberrant classes were offered nearly four years ago. Obviously, they have a vested interest in keeping the story alive. (Daily Tar Heel)

Bethel: DTH Editorial unfairly represented film

A recent Daily Tar Heel editorial about me exemplifies the very sensationalism and unethical journalism that have motivated me to make a documentary film titled “Unverified.” Hiding behind the anonymity of the editorial board, the writer(s) have flagrantly mischaracterized the purpose of the film and my motivation for making it. The entire editorial is based on the false premise that my blog and my film are attempts to deny any wrongdoing took place related to the infamous paper classes. (Daily Tar Heel)

UNC Addressing Accreditation

The most serious decision UNC faces in the aftermath of the Wainstein Report isn’t coming from the NCAA. It’s coming from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), which has the power to pull UNC’s accreditation -- but won't.

Bethel: The Truth Is In the Annual Reports

A year ago today, I published "Truth and Literacy at UNC," my first essay challenging Mary Willingham's false claims about UNC athletes. Documents recently released in response to a public records request further demonstrate that Willingham has embellished and fabricated much of her narrative about UNC athletics. (Coaching the Mind)

Why Nyang'oro Didn't Have to Grade His Papers

Bradley Bethel's guest blogger, Don Brown, is a former Navy JAG officer and the author of several military thrillers: As the facts revealed in the Wainstein Report are digested, and as other facts come to light, it becomes more and more apparent that all the hoopla over “fraud” and “scandal” and “fake classes” and other such nonsense will prove to have been egregiously overblown.
