'Endless gratitude': Concordia College New York celebrates final commencement (lcms.org) (Glowing report that hardly told it like it is about problems that existed at the school.  Lecakes received an honorary doctorate that was meaningless and hardly deserved.  This is a great example of how bad a job the LCMS communications department does.  Many years ago, Dave Mahsman of LCMS communications did some semblance of two-sided journalism, but that has almost never happened in LCMS Reporter in recent years.  One can look at Baptist Press and even United Methodist News Service (and others) that do better.  The Christian Post is generally a very good independent news outlet.)
