Snark and the Chronicle

Here’s something I wouldn’t quite have expected to see: the Chronicle of Higher Education actively making fun of an institution of… well, higher education. (Subscription required, alas; I’ll try to post an open link as soon as one exists.)

Not to say they didn’t totally deserve it. But I bet public relations officers the academy over are now rethinking the Chron’s place on their automatic mailing list…


  1. Amusing, though I can hardly blame the snark – a multicolor press release over a stoplight? Clearly, someone’s PR budget isn’t suffering…

    As a side note KF – there’s some minor chatter about a Herder/blogger DC gathering possibly happening next week. Are you in the area and/or interested?
