What is worse than the crime? The cover-up.
Yesterday I posted the hour long video of Jonah Edelman’s presentation at the Aspen Ideas Festival.
It was fascinating to watch as Edelman frankly, proudly, described how his group, Stand For Children, outfoxed the CTU, IFT and the IEA into supporting Senate Bill 7. The bill, Edelman openly admits, was designed to fool the union leadership into giving up the right of Chicago teachers to strike.
IEA Executive Director Audrey Soglin comes out looking bad. Edelman describes her as “pragmatic” and actually happy at the outcome. As if she were more aligned with Stand for Children than her own membership. That’s basically what Edelman says. Not me.
Hearing him speak about Audrey will lead you to wonder if it is not unlike having the attorney for the other side sitting at your table in court.
But if you go to the Aspen site today, the video is gone.
None of the other conference videos are gone. Only the Edelman video.
Who pulled it from the site?
Let’s guess, shall we.
But haven’t we all learned from Watergate that the cover-up is worse than the crime.
“I was hiking the Appalachian trail.”
Meanwhile, we have people working to download it from other sites.
We’ll get it back.
