The Rocky Mountain News unveiled an investigative series today looking into the allegations against Ward Churchill, the Colorado professor who represents everything that’s wrong with academia today. Here’s an overview:

University of Colorado professor Ward Churchill fabricated historical facts, published the work of others as his own and repeatedly made false claims about two federal Indian laws, a Rocky Mountain News investigation has found.

The two-month News investigation, carried out at the same time Churchill and his work are being carefully examined by the university, also unearthed fresh genealogical information that casts new doubts on the professor’s long-held assertion that he is of American Indian ancestry.
