AP Photo/Ron Harris The University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill wants conventional accreditation. But unfortunately, the school isn’t sufficiently soaked in DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion).

The issue involves the Hussman School of Journalism and Media, and its inadequacy in the eyes of the Accrediting Council on Education in Journalism and Mass Communications (ACEJMC). Every six years, certification must be renewed. And an April 29th vote landed on the side of “Unapproved.” Only provisional status was granted, with another review scheduled two years out.

The Daily Tar Heel relays the reason for rejection: The council found that the journalism school was out of compliance with its standard involving diversity and inclusiveness… It also found issues of concern involving the council’s standard relating to mission, governance and administration. UNC must not only meet identity quotas in its enrollment and hiring, but teach social justice to future journalists: The council’s site team said the journalism school needs to continue to follow its diversity plan and initiatives in student and faculty retention and recruitment specifically.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down

Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.

For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.

Thank you and God bless!
