Most of you know about PSU Board of Trustees member (and Freeh report liaison) Kenneth Frazier and his big mouth: first, the racist faux pas at the Thursday session of the BoT on March 14 with board candidate Bill Cluck, then his outburst with trustee Anthony Lubrano the following day. If not, read my summary.
Our friends at NotPSU, who now call themselves the “Voice of the FREEHdom Fighters” and to whom we’ve pointed you several times before, have unearthed a series of edits on Ken Frazier’s Wikipedia page that tried to sanitize the board incident. One of the edits appears to have come from Merck, where Frazier is Chairman, President, and CEO. As this turkey publishes this post, the paragraph in question reads as follows:
On March 14, 2013, at a sub-committee meeting of the Penn State Board of Trustees, Frazier uttered what was considered to be a racially-insensitive remark at a candidate running for the Board of Trustees who criticized the Freeh narrative. Frazier apologized for his remarks several days later.
However, the history of edits suggest that the paragraph has been hither, thither, and yon before arriving at the above. Read about the whole sordid mess in Jeffrey Simons’ article entitled “Kenneth Frazier: Control of Narrative Extends to the Internet.”
