More Melissa Click

Melissa Click justifies her actions in controversial videos
She defends herself not with apology, but with self-righteous, self-serving virtue signaling.

Plus she has hired a reputation-fixer/propagandist to salvage her on-line image from her own actions.

"Who do you call when you’re facing a digital reputation crisis? Darius Fisher, president and cofounder of Status Labs, an online reputation management, digital marketing, and public relations firm headquartered in Austin, Texas.


A testament to Fisher’s skill is how he’s thriving despite his own controversial past, including a high-profile PR fiasco involving revelations that his former company edited Wikipedia pages against the online encyclopedia’s rules, and, more recently, the resignation of his Status Lab co-partner Jordan French. The native New Yorker previously had stints as a copywriter and political consultant.

Editor's note: This article was updated on December 2, 2015 to change the word "firing" to "resignation" in relation to Jordan French."

[emphasis added]
Apparently French got a reputation make-over, too.

What's amusing to me is that in the 1960s, these people were taking over campus buildings in protest against everything Establishment. Now that they ARE the Establishment, they are *aiding* the students in pulling down the very things that make it possible to get a good education - as well as the things that make it *worth* getting a good education.

The amusing part? The look on their faces and their screams of shock and outrage as their carefully-cultivated crop of Maoist 'rebels' turns the guns on their 'educators'.
