What MIT Media Lab's funding scandal says about sexism in tech

The article focuses on MIT's Media Lab accepting money from Jeffrey Epstein... which, while an important story to tell, puts a slant on the issue.

Quote:Even though Epstein was listed as "disqualified" in MIT's official donor database, the Media Lab continued to accept gifts from him, marking his contributions as anonymous so as to avoid disclosing their full extent. If faculty members expressed disapproval of the transactions and the school's relationship with the sex offender, efforts were made to keep them in the dark.
This raises further questions: What else has MIT's Media Lab been covering up in the last decade? Can we trust anything that's come out of there?

The person responsible for accepting this particular money has resigned... but the damage has already been done.
