Lehigh University Should Fire Un-Ethical Journalist & Adjunct Professor Bill White












[12/14 UpDate: Bill White responds by publishing an un-hinged and profane name-calling comment at his blog that's deleted at our request by Morning Call online editors Marc Rosenberg and Elizabeth Bartolai overnight]

Watch: Back Story Michael Donovan 69 News Exposé 

In one of the more disillusioning examples of crooked colluding cronyism LVS has exposed to date, get this ... compulsive LVS stalker and under-achieving Morning Call "newspaper" Food/Gluttony, Movie Quotes, and Christmas "lites" columnist Bill White (pictured) has inexplicably taught journalism (?) at Bethlehem PA's Lehigh University for 28 years.

Oh wait, here's the explanation: the Chair of the Department is Bill's longtime fellow Morning Call pally, Wally Trimble. 

Here's, specifically, why Lehigh University should fire Bill White ASAP.

Readers, please take a moment to carefully examine the stunningly obvious deception The Morning Call perpetrated on me, and on its readers recently, in full view of you, the public.


As you can see, not only did "reporter" Jarrett Renshaw and "columnist" Bill White purposefully not tell their readers anything about the nature of the vile, anti-Villas content at Donovan's blog that triggered our complaint against Donovan to the Allentown "Ethics" Board ...

Renshaw and White (w/ the approval of their editors, presumably) also both quoted the author/perpetrators of all that signed anti-Villas vile at Donovan's blog as testimonial character witnesses for Donovan (!) never mentioning that these same Donovan "character witnesses" were also the author/perpetrators of all that anti-Villas filth at Donovan's blog.

Also never mentioned is that Renshaw and White are openly and publicly friendly w/ the cyber perpetrators and that their protectee, Michael Donovan, blogs for The Morning Call.

Those are The Inconvenient Facts, Lehigh U folks, and we have the hard copy to prove it to you.

Bill White is a coward and a liar.

No way he should be teaching journalism anywhere, or getting paid to write anything.

I've civilly and politely e-requested an in-person meeting w/ Wally Trimble and Bill White. No response yet from either pussy.

Readers, FYI, re: "Fire Bill White," I have bypassed my usual first step(s) of civilly contacting the "powers that be" (in this case, Lehigh University) and politely requesting an in-person meeting w/ a relevant someone there.

Sadly, my experience w/ Glenn Kranzley and also w/ Cedar Crest College has taught me that, in the Lehigh Walley at least, civility and politeness are perceived as a sign of weakness ... and being civil and polite only makes it easier for gatekeepers like Glenno (used to be) to ignore you, hundreds & hundreds of times, before one switches to "flame-thrower" mode, and then you get denied the meeting because they "don't like your approach." Which is pretty clever of them.

So (as a time saver), I've proceeded directly to flame-thrower mode on this one, fairly confident they won't like my approach.

If Lehigh U wants to do anything about Bill White, they know where and how to contact me.

Or they can bypass me and just fire him, I'd be fine w/ that too.

Bill Villa said...

(almost forgot)

But I know they won't do anything.

That would require doing some research, having some empathy, and displaying some integrity.

And the odds (locally) are real long on these things.

But it's a heckuva blog post.

Here's a journalism lesson from today's on-line Morning Call. A homeless man burns to death from his kerosene heater;a homeless woman freezes to death from last night's cold snap. But the BIG story is a dog dying of cancer.

White's only an adjunct, not a regular faculty member. Adjuncts are paid very little, so it's not like Lehigh is rolling out the red carpet for him.The process of hiring adjuncts is much more low-key than hiring regular faculty members. Involvement of the dean or the provost or even most faculty members in the department is minimal (possibly zero). Decision is usually taken by the department chair to cover teaching needs (if someone in the department wanted to teach the course, they wouldn't need an adjunct) and someone with real-life experience always looks great on paper.

Sounds like Bill White could be shit-canned pretty easily by his Pally Wally.

It's sad to imagine people like Bill White teaching impressionable and eager Lehigh students. (His course, JOUR 11: News Writing, is for students with freshman or sophomore standing.) Journalism majors all deep down want to work at a real newspaper and look up to someone like Bill White as someone who achieved their dream, although the students' dream really is unbiased high-quality journalism. New York Times, not Morning Call.

Bill White must have read the New York Time's editorial page from two Sundays ago (or someone read it to him). His column today about the PA Supreme Court ethics is a blatant rip-off of what a New York City newspaper editorialized last month! Here's a journalism lesson for you Lehigh students: Read the NY Times instead of the Allentown rag, and don't pay attention to "journalists" who never have an original thought.

One thing that is important to remember is that in this region, the Scope of those Sleeping together , literally and figuratively, is beyond imagination. I suspect that White's employment at Lehigh is a sort of Insurance/Assurance Policy to keep negative reporting of Campus Crime at a minimum. Sort of a "I will wash you back if you wash mine". The investment in his salary is a pittance compared to the bad Press the School could get when On Campus Crime occurs.

Maybe White should be teaching a Spinning class using the wool that is used to pull over the Communities Eyes.

Isn't she the troublemaker who got her husband sued?

Bill Villa said...

9:11, you raise a very valid concern, and don't forget, Lehigh's relationship w/ The Morning Call "newspaper" runs much "deeper" than "Bill White."

Lehigh's longtime adjunct journalism professor (and ex-Morning Call Editorial & Opinions Gatekeeper Editor) Glenn Kranzley may be the most crooked colluding crony-connected person in the Lehigh Valley. Glenno has been known to keep a "newspaper" lid on all sorts of things, like for example DA Jim Martin's M.I.A. attendance at a Broadway show the night the Lehigh County Commissioners shot down the Jim Martin/Don Cunning-Ham "Safe Streets Initiative" that would have pumped much-needed funds (immediately) into Allentown to hire more Police officers, to name just one of the many, many examples of Jim Martin/Morning Call collusion we've exposed here at LVS.

And Wally Trimble has been a Morning Caller even longer than Glenno was.

Did you know that Lehigh County's "Right To Know" Officer is ex-Morning Caller Kathleen Parrish? This makes it extremely difficult if not impossible to get to "know" anything about crooked crony connections involving The Morning Call and local government, like for example the fast-track hiring of longtime Morning Call crime beat reporter Debbie Garlicki by Jim Martin.

This is why we refer to The Morning Call as our area's epicenter of evil.

Instead of exposing collusion and corruption, as a newspaper should be doing, The Morning Call "newspaper" is frequently a proactive participant in our area's most disturbing collusion and corruption.

Bill Villa said...

9:21, LVS has been informed by a person who was in attendance at "W" Mike Donovan's court proceeding for criminal harassment that the plaintiff, Donovan's neighbor, who had had her front door smashed by Donovan (allegedly) or Diana Morse had been so "spooked" and pressured by Donovan accomplices to not dare to even try "fighting City Hall" that she was too timid to make her case. The Judge seemed more than open to finding Donovan guilty ... but in the end, because of a timid (and intimidated) presentation by the neighbor plaintiff, Donovan was found "not guilty" which does not mean innocent. The powers-that-be spooked neighbor subsequently dropped her civil lawsuit against Donovan and Diana Morse for the destruction of her property. From what we know, from a very informed source, Donovan just barely dodged the bullet here, w/ "a little help from his friends."

The City Official said...

One of Donovan's best "friends" and major protectors is Allentown City Council President (for now) Michael D'Amore who The Morning Call "newspaper" has announced wants to be Allentown's next Mayor.

Fat chance.
