Northwestern accuses j-prof Protess of lying, doctoring records

Chicago Tribune

Northwestern officials say David Protess's conduct could "undermine the integrity" of the university, its students and the news media. In a two-hour, closed-door meeting, journalism school Dean John Lavine explained to Medill faculty how a review of Protess' conduct led to his removal from teaching for the spring quarter.

From The Daily Northwestern's story:

The mood [at the faculty meeting] was solemn but respectful, [one professor] said. Another Medill faculty member, who asked to speak anonymously due to the sensitivity of the subject, described the meeting as "tense," as some professors were completely convinced by the presentation and others had their doubts.
