My love/hate relationship with The Western Gazette

Update: If students are “uninformed” and not able to make the right choice, what does this mean for the student leaders they elect?

I have this real love/hate thing going on with The Western Gazette. Some days, I really love their coverage and then there are others when I really hate it.

Today, it’s love. (Nice work Lauren.)


I just read further into the paper and there is a lot of good content today.

This opinion is dead on: "More importantly, I’d suggest the USC avoid asking questions if it does not intend to listen to the answer." I could apply that statement to many students unions across country, especially this one.

Seriously, student politicians, insulting the intelligence of your student body is not a good strategy if you are trying to convince government that you should be taken seriously.

If students are dumb, and your a "student leader" elected by "dumb" students, what credibility do you have?
