Something doesn’t add up.
A prominent television journalist in India says she quit her job there because she was offered a faculty position at Harvard.
The Boston Globe has the details.
“While I was making preparations to take up my new assignment, I was later told that due to the ongoing pandemic, my classes would commence in January 2021,” she wrote in a tweet that had been shared nearly 17,000 times.
Soon after, Razdan said she began noticing “a number of administrative anomalies” about the process that the person — or persons — described to her during their correspondence.
Here’s what bothers me about this: To believe this story, I have to accept Nidhi Razdan agreed to teach at Harvard and never once went online to learn anything about the (nonexistent) journalism program at the university.
