Today's word on journalism

Monday, March 6, 2006

"Neutrality in journalism means refusal to take sides. Many newspapers are neutral with regard to certain issues. Hardly a newspaper exists which is completely neutral upon all issues. Such a newspaper would be regarded as spineless. Just as the individual cannot escape taking sides against evils in life, so the newspaper necessarily has convictions against crime, corruption, and other evils in public affairs."

--George Fox Mott, journalism professor, in "An Outline Survey of Journalism," 1940

Partying the (sorta) New Orleans way

Many bands played throughout the party, keeping a pretty steady mosh pit all night long.
Tables for mock gambling -- no cash wagers were made -- were set up in the Hub.
All levels of the TSC were packed with people.
A bunch of friends gettin' in on the party.

"Bettors" were given chips when they entered.
