Description

The Rocky Mountain News tells how University of Colorado-Boulder ethnic studies professor Ward Churchill ignited a major controversy when he called the victims of the World Trade Center terrorist attack "Little Eichmanns." After calls for his firing, he was also accused of plagiarism and misrepresenting himself as having American Indian heritage. The News investigated and found evidence of academic misconduct through unauthorized use of others' material and language, inaccurate historical references in his scholarly work and no Indian ancestry.
