Adjective of the day

If you're wondering how this got to be a "scandal," and how it managed to become the third most important story in the history of the world in space, or why it's still "reportedly" after having been reported in the Post this morning, let us take your mind off those worries:

A former Weather Underground radical who spent 22 years in prison for an armored-car robbery that killed two cops and a Brinks guard now reportedly holds a prestigious adjunct professorship at Columbia University’s School of Social Work.

OK, at the originating paper, there's no "reportedly," and the lede ends with "the Post has learned." But do you get the impression that the Post hasn't asked many adjuncts how they'd describe their work?

I'm looking for an adjunct to pick up a section of the editing course for the fall. I'll add "prestigious" to the job description.
