Never Say an Unkind Word About Title IX
In today’s edition of the New York Times, the nation’s paper of record has finally taken note of what we’ve been warning about for a while — budget cuts forcing the elimination of athletic teams.
But though the story by Ken Belson mentions Title IX, he doesn’t mention its pernicious effect during an era of cost-cutting. Like it or not, thanks to the proportionality prong, we know for a fact that the vast majority of athletes getting shown the door are men.
Not that the Times would bother to mention that, would they?
