Post readers must really hate us

hhhThe New York Post, which was trolling around facebook and e-mail aliases for sources yesterday, fingered the assistant Comp Lit professor whom students accused of giving away answers, in characteristically rabid fashion. 

Spectator confirmed and has an interesting story to go with it. 

The Daily News gave it two inches.  

Ivygate thought it was all hilarious and ennobled a few good comments.

The New York Sun talked about other schools’ problems.

Oh, Rupert Murdoch…

P.S. If you’re in a petition-signing mood, there’s a facebook group!

  • Woah. says:

    @Woah. This is turning into a pretty serious scandal, it probably demands Quigley’s resignation.

  • balderdash says:

    @balderdash Just in case you were being serious, that’s ridiculous.

    1. Dean Quigley? says:

      @Dean Quigley? You read the bwog? Come on – do you really think an AMERICAN college student would use the word “balderdash”?

  • sick burn says:

    @sick burn Jimmy “Two Inches” Vielkind got pwned.

  • oooh ! says:

    @oooh ! resignations are fun!

    Spec confirmed the instructor’s name–I noticed you deleted those posts earlier.

  • WTF? says:

    @WTF? Wen Jin?! Who the hell is that?

    1. Uhh says:

      @Uhh Why would you expect to have heard of the teacher? Look on the English department website, dumbass.

  • discuss says:

    @discuss Is J. N. from the Post article a huge snitch? Or doing her part for responsible journalism?
    I’m halfway of the opinion that no one from Columbia should ever discuss any problem here with anyone from the Post, but I await opinions from Bwog commenters.

  • stop sitchin'! says:

    @stop sitchin'! Jessica Nevitt and Susanna Wolf are BOTH snitches.

    CC2010- ostracize them. They should receive like a 3 month (not including summer) ban from all social benefits of being a 2010er. They want fake IDs? Don’t sell to them. They want in to your party? Send ’em home. They want free food at your student group event? Sorry, no snitches.

  • also says:

    @also “That sucks bigtime,” Lakshika Trikha, CC ’10, said of the decision to toss the exam results. “No one I know knew about it [the review sheets] before the exam.”

    Congrats, a 2010er who is NOT a snitch.

    Meir Stampfer on the other hand is a royal snitch douschebag.

  • thank you jimmy says:

    @thank you jimmy for not letting the daily news take this stupid thing and blow it up into some big fake controversy

    it’s also gross that the post considers themselves a legitimate news source

  • taking bets says:

    @taking bets every post before 8:30 am was done by an administrator at columbia

  • the post says:

    @the post does not care about real journalism. It’s main purpose is hacking stories to death with misquotes and over emphatic language. The TA messed up once and now her name is in the post–that should be punishment enough and 2010, you should never talk to any “media outlet” during an ongoing investigation, this might force the University’s hand. Nice one

    1. the person says:

      @the person who gave out the answers isn’t a t ta. she is a tenure track professor in the english department. young, yes, but a ta or grad student, no.

    2. oh please says:

      @oh please like you wouldn’t have naively done that as a freshman too. give 2010 a break – clearly in the whole class there will be a few people who didn’t figure it out. hopefully, they’ll learn.

  • well says:

    @well “Rather, the final included a passage from Part IV, Chapter I, when Arkady Ivanovitch Svidrigailov ponders whether eternity is like being locked in a room filled with spiders.”

    For some reason I like that that got into the NY Post.

  • agreed says:

    @agreed They were probably just trying to show-off their spelling skills.

  • did anyone else says:

    @did anyone else get this facebook message?


    My name is Leela de Kretser and I am a reporter at the New York Post. I am writing a story about the LitHum exam, where apparently a professor leaked the final beforehand.

    Can you please call me on 212 *** ****?

    1. post says:

      @post her full number. I’d love to give her the real dirt on Columbia, when I can find some time in between all this cheating, wild sex, and suppression of free speech.

  • if... says:

    @if... If Murdoch gets his hands on the WSJ then we can probably expect anti-Columbia stories there too…

  • Wanna know says:

    @Wanna know Wanna know what a GSer does after they graduate?

    1. mike says:

      @mike Hey, don’t make fun! She’s a *self-taught* web designer!

      Never woulda guessed…

      1. Try scrolling says:

        @Try scrolling Try scrolling to the right to read her ‘secret’ message

  • asdf says:

    @asdf another banner year for columbia p.r.

  • what the says:

    @what the using people’s full names in comments isn’t cool…

    1. maybe not says:

      @maybe not but when they give their full names and a bunch of other gossip to The New York Post and it gets published, I’d say it’s all fair game.

      p.s. SNITCHES!!!

  • Sprinkles says:

    @Sprinkles Let’s just review one thing here…

    Hell, don’t even talk to the Daily News if you value your integrity (no offense to Jimmy, he’s cool).

    Now back to your regularly-scheduled bickering on teh int3rcub3.

  • scarred says:

    @scarred scarred for life.

  • all GSers are says:

    @all GSers are just like this one… except for some of them who aren’t

  • all GSers says:

    @all GSers are stupid.

    1. yep says:

      @yep that’s probably true

      1. McFister says:

        @McFister What does GS have to do with CC students cheating on a Lit Hum exam?

        1. They says:

          @They They cheated their way into any Ivy League school

          1. McFister says:

            @McFister Yes, but then they stopped cheating.

          2. Got me there! says:

            @Got me there! But not so with Nico C… or so I hear

          3. McFister says:

            @McFister I have no idea what that means.
