WILLIAM M. ARKIN – January 4 is my last day at NBC News and Iâ€™d like to say goodbye to my friends, hopefully not for good. This isnâ€™t the first time Iâ€™ve left NBC, but this time the parting is more bittersweet, the world and the state of journalism in tandem crisis. My expertise, though seeming to be all the more central to the challenges and dangers we face, also seems to be less valued at the moment. And I find myself completely out of synch with the network, being neither a day-to-day reporter nor interested in the Trump circus.

This is why VICE News has analyzed and ranked the 100 most militarized universities in America.
