“The Independent Newspaper at the UO”

No, it’s no longer the Independent Student Newspaper at the University of Oregon. Instead, it’s written by a bunch of journalists known only as the AP.
That’s right. Instead of losing an issue of the Daily Emerald, I guess the Board of Directors decided to release a student newspaper with 0% student involvement.
The front page reads “Wanted for war crimes in Darfur: Sudan’s President”
I love how relevant this is!
It was written by Mike Corder for the Associated Press in THE HAGUE, NETHERLANDS!

Seriously?

And below the fold, of course, is the Campus news. Tim Fought for AP Portland writes about Emerald News Staff Protest.
Well at least there’s some recognition.
Also in the paper is the Daily Emerald BoD statement, and a statement from Independent Journalism, the blog that the news staff is writing on to cover the events and talk about the protest. (independentjournalism.wordpress.com)
Of course, since there was no student involvement, whoever wrote the paper today made a mistake on the front page. I’m too lazy to read the rest of it to see if there are errors, but I thought it was funny that under the board’s statement, it is signed:

-TH4E BOARD OF DIRECTORS

Whoops.

So basically this issue is shit.

In other news, I’m going to see Sound Tribe Sector Nine tonight at McDonald Theater, but I’m not bringing my camera (Can’t bring it in). I would attempt to get a press pass … but …
