Comical Integrity

The Student Assembly (SA) approved a “Statement of Concern Regarding Journalistic Integrity in The Dartmouth” on Tuesday night. The impetus for the resolution was a comic – that’s right, a comic. After all, if one can’t trust comics to deliver on journalistic integrity, where is one to turn? Spearheading the move was SA President Timmy Andreadis, who tried a similar move last winter but failed to gain the requisite votes. Among a bevy of other complaints addressed, was the selection process for op-ed pieces; again, diversity is encouraged as long as it doesn’t offend Timmy, i.e., no more publishing male writers.
