Higher Ed Roundup – 11/10/10


A 9NEWS I-TEAM investigation reveals $5.4 million dollars worth of unaccounted for items within a large portion of the LSU system.

The 9NEWS I-TEAM examined inventory records covering the years 2005 to 2008. The records included the LSU main campus in Baton Rouge, the LSU Agriculture Center, the LSU System Office, and LSU campuses in Eunice and Alexandria.

It is noteworthy this news story is from WAFB-TV9 in Baton Rouge and not WRBZ-TV2 or The (Baton Rouge) Advocate, both of which are owned by the Manship family’s Capital City Press.

Last month, Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) explored the connection between Louisiana State University (LSU) and the Manship media combine.
