Too often in our day balanced reporting has fallen by the wayside.  Such was the case in a NY Times article (“Betsy Devos’s Hiring of For-Profit College Official Raises Impartiality Issues”)  published online March 17, 2017 about Robert S. Eitel, a former law partner of mine and current member of the beachhead team at the U.S. Department of Education.  The article left out critical information about the full extent of the recusals Mr. Eitel pursued and agreed-to with the Department’s ethics office.  Writer Jennifer Rubin of the Washington Post’s Right Turn blog aptly captures the issues here.
