    Jennifer Winters — ex long time, local broadcast “journalist”.

  2. confused by "reports" says:

    So first was the delegation of authority policy and then there was the adapted (adapted??) delegation of authority policy which was voted down, right? Lookin’ for clarity.

  3. ‘Jennifer Winters — ex long time, local broadcast “journalist”.’

    Indeed, Anon. This is endlessly fascinating.

    Jennifer Winters goes from 17 years of reporting at KVAL to a nice pay check in the University of Oregon’s PR Department.

    Rob Moseley goes from reporting sports at the Register-Guard to becoming Editor-In-Chief at GoDucks.com.

    Rob Bolt, investigative reporter at the Register Guard, goes to work at the University of Oregon in the PR department.

    Carolyn McDermed, formerly a Lieutenant at the Eugene Police Department, become the Chief of the University of Oregon Police Department.

    Lt. Mike Morrow, former of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, is also now a member of the University of Oregon Police Department.

    I’m reminded of the line from the crooked cop played by Denzel Washington in the film “Training Day”: “It’s not what you know…It’s what you can prove.”

    But, Even if we all know the truth and understand how these social networks actually operate: How can we empirically prove that?

    What we do know is that the University of Oregon hires and compensates people based on the relationships and social networks that they have. And, the UO also rewards people with good jobs if they don’t expose the UO for what it actually is (a corrupt, criminal organization) in their previous careers.

    If I was an attorney and also the University of Oregon President, I would try to figure out a way to change legislation so that I could privatize the University of Oregon’s legal representation so that my buddies and I could personally make money off of that after I left UO.

    But, that, would be implausible, …right? Eventually, wouldn’t some people catch on to that sort of graft?
