Seriously LTTE: Wow, I love the student newspaper

Dear Editor,

In response to The Collegian’s work this year, I just wanted to say that you all are doing a great job. 


Contrary to pretty much every other reader you have, I find myself so energized about the future of journalism that I wanted to say it publically. 

Curiously, I agree with the way you have handled every news story this year, even the one that I was affiliated with. I know you have to provide a balanced perspective, so when you quoted That One Guy who hated my event and my campus community, I didn’t get upset with you. I got upset with him, because he sucks, not the paper.

Man, I just realized, you guys have to deal the That One Guy all the time. That is probably a lot of work. 

I read the paper every day, and when I read an opinion I disagree with, I often find myself thinking “huh, that’s a different opinion,” and continue living my life. 

It’s pretty impressive that full-time students have the time to put together a newspaper every day. By the way, would you mind writing a brief about my event on April 2?

Editor’s note: This is a satire piece from The Collegian’s opinion section. Real names may be used in fictitious/semi-fictitious ways. Those who do not read editor’s notes are subject to being offended.
