In an Oct. 28 speech on the Senate floor, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., criticized the Pentagon’s recent decision to put the University of Phoenix on probation.
The Pentagon’s move to halt tuition assistance to the for-profit institution came in direct response to our report, published earlier this year, which disclosed that the university had sidestepped an executive order intended to protect the military and veterans from profiteers.
But McCain characterized the punishment differently. He called it “a result of an investigation by an outfit that no one had ever heard of.”
We were surprised to hear such a dismissal – especially since McCain has cited our reporting in the past. So we thought we should reintroduce ourselves.
