Lying liars and the lies they tell
April 3, 2009
Ward Churchill got a dollar more than he deserved.
A jury decided Thursday that the former University of Colorado professor was fired in retaliation for a controversial essay, yet awarded him a mere dollar in damages, the minimum allowable.
Maybe the jury came to the conclusion there was enough blame to go around. How else do you explain the rationale?
Hmm, maybe the geniuses at the Denver Post just missed yesterday’s call into the Caplis and Silverman show by one of the jurors. Y’know, the one where she explained exactly why they voted for nominal damages.
Or maybe the staff at the Denver Post are, well, still lying. I’d guess that after four years of it, it might be kind of hard to break the habit.
