UNC Academic Scandal: new investigation, but same old facts

     UNC has announced that they will be starting a new investigation into the school's long-standing academic scandal.  Led by Kenneth Wainstein, a partner with the firm of Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft, this new endeavor will try and avoid the mistakes made by numerous investigations and reviews that came before.

     The information and facts needed to solve this athletic/academic puzzle, however, have been held within the university's records all along.  If the prior reviews (which were also sanctioned and appointed by the school) conveniently avoided getting to the root of the problem, then it remains questionable whether Wainstain will be any more successful in uncovering (and reporting) the truth.

     Bits of information on those prior reviews (and their ineffectiveness) have been presented to the public in small doses over the past few years.  In the coming months they will be summarized in a concise and clear manner, yet also with great detail and analysis of their shortcomings.
