Discussion: Report: UC Davis Spent $175K To Clean Online Rep After Pepper Spray Incident

I hope no one is surprised by this. Universities play the public relations game as well as most organizations. Their priorities are 1) avoiding lawsuits 2) succeeding at fund raising 3) minimizing negative publicity and then lower down the list 4) something about education, students, and faculty. It’s sad, but it’s a fact of life in academia.
