The Los Angeles Times reported that Occidental College suppressed 27 sex assault allegations from last year. This is not the first time Occidental College has failed to take action on such claims, according to the Times.

Times reporter Jason Felch has been investigating the case and spoke with Take Two about his coverage.

Editor's note: On March 14 — after this interview aired — the Los Angeles Times acknowledged errors in three stories about Occidental College's reporting of sexual assault allegations, including the story that was the basis of this interview.
