New campus political journal

Today’s Daily D describes a new campus publication, the Dartmouth Independent, which seeks to present both liberal and conservative points of view in a point-counterpoint format. According to the D, the two sophomore founders will appeal to centrists by presenting both liberal and conservative ideas. Seeing multiple facets of an issue, though, is not unique to centrist newspapers; it is, in fact, a tenet central to journalism. The D did not publish comments from representatives of existing publications, including The Review, the liberal College-funded Free Press or the non-partisan Dartmouth Contemporary, a newspaper reporter Matthew Abbott ’06 entirely neglected to mention.
