What lie did she let the media run with?  That the paper was a final draft and received an A?  If that is the story you are going with she squashed that almost immediately on Twitter.  

 

 During his visit to New York, Dean said of Willingham: “She’s said our students can’t read, our athletes can’t read, and that’s a lie.”

Dean grossly distorted Willingham’s statements. What she’s said is that 18 out of the 183 special admit athletes whose records she assessed read at roughly a third-grade level. An additional 110 of the athletes, she said, read at between fourth- and eighth-grade levels. She never said that most, let alone all, of the 800 athletes at UNC are illiterate, and she said nothing at all about the other 18,000 undergraduates.

When challenged, Dean conceded he’d misspoken. He also admitted that he doesn’t really think Willingham is a liar and assumes she means well. But would he similarly qualify his assault on Willingham back in Chapel Hill?

 

Look this is what I keep bringing to the table, facts and cited text from people at unc, people at ESPN, and Willingham herself.  You have brought nothing but this story you made up in your head where for some reason you think she is a liar and unc is getting the shaft on this whole academic fraud situation.  Do some research with an open mind and you could actually learn something.  I don't want unc burned to the ground, my wife went there, I have a ton of friends who went there and like them I just want it cleaned up so it's not an embarrassment on the whole North Carolina university system.

no, twitter squashed it because it went crazy when the story broke. She just came behind it and changed the story.She thought people would just let it ride but they didn't. it was presented as a lie. Letting the liar explain the lie away doesn't change anything. She posted the story on her twitter misrepresenting this paper without "squashing" it immediately.She voted for it before she voted against it.

What coach would risk a whole season by knowingly playing an ineligible player?  That doesn't make sense, that's why roy never put PJ on the court this year.

plausible deniability.

Willingham tweeted multiple stories on the "essay" as presented without correction before the firestorm. Maybe even though she is a reading specialist she didn't read these stories.Maybe she didn't read the headline that stated the misinformation.

 The story now is that she was with the student who wrote the essay and he/she wrote it on Willinghams computer as she watched.

Get off here, you're drunk!  It was an ESPN story that people ran with.  It's like the telephone game we played in elementary school one person hears one thing and the story changes.  She never changed her story, she clarified her story when it got misrepresented.

If this is true then copy and paste the tweets from twitter, it's easy.  I have an open mind so unlike you if you show me real evidence I can take it in and process it.  I have been waiting for 3 pages for you to come with some real evidence to back up your claims.  Let's do this.

This is the general synopsis of what Willingham is trying to get across in any of these interviews:

 

“Let’s say my data are off a little bit,” she said. “I don’t think they are, but let’s say they are. Set aside the data. Forget about it. The paper classes were still fake, and they existed to keep athletes eligible.”

“I’ve sat with these kids,” Willingham continued, referring to heavily recruited athletes. “Some of them can barely read. We have to meet them where they’re at and teach them to read.” That’ll be tough to do, however, while they’re also attending college classes and playing Division I basketball or football.

 

You are hanging your hat on ESPN showing a paper that she had from an athlete and then somebody, not Willingham, running with and saying that it got an A, and because she came out and said that was not the case and she corrected what someone else screwed up she is the liar?  That's ludicrous!

It was an ESPN story that people clarified and called BS on.you are the one playing the game along with Willingham but she lost.she misrepresented it on her own twitter page before she "clarified" it "immediately". A liar that got caught.

I'm not hanging my hat on anything. I just said this paper as presented was a lie and it was.

Shocking, once again no facts to back up your claims and those should be easy to find if they exist.  Why the hell would I do your work for you?  Lazy!
