An editor’s view

Another view of "The Paper," from the current editor of The Collegian:

"This film was a mirror for many of us, albeit a two-year-old view.

What
I saw reflected in this film more than anything else was a struggle to
achieve objectivity when the subjects of a story differ somehow from
the “average” Penn State student.

In one part of the film,
then-editor in chief Jimmy Young clearly states that diversity training
is not an endeavor the Collegian is willing to undertake.

I saw a collective cringe go through the room when he said that.

And so, The Paper is video evidence of why we have to take that step.

We’ve got some work to do, and I intend to get us started."
