    So they wrote an article that has a heavily left leaning slant?
    Sounds like these students will be perfect candidates to be hired by many of the so-called newspapers today.

    I thought being "out standing in your field" was the safest place TO be?

    Back when I was a student, the ONLY reason I got the Daily was the crossword puzzle which did NOT appear on a daily basis. And the kid I got the Daily from wore a little beret and Payne Stewart pants. And there were horses.

    It was an editorial. So-called newspapers have them as well. The big failure IMO is that they did not provide the opposing viewpoint. The claim is they didn't see the CALS student's response, but I'm pretty willing to call ******** on that

    I wish the central Iowa broadcast sports journalists shared your viewpoint, but I have just abandoned watching the local news.

    Life isn't an à la carte menu where you get to pick and choose each and every item your fees and taxes pay for.

    You'd think that ISU wouldn't want to paint their own departments in a bad light at all, though. That does strike me as odd -- "Let's try to make own our colleagues look bad for possibly dishonest reasons!" Journalism, Business, and Ag all have one thing in common: they're all departments of the same university.

    Yeah yeah yeah "liberal media agenda" blah, we've heard it all before. Spare me. While I agree that journalism at a high level seems to be decreasing in quality over time, both sides of the isle are equally and severely guilty of it.

    From a business point-of-view, I think you're right. "Honest" journalism takes pride in not being affected by its ownership, though - so I can see that being like walking on the edge of a sword.

    Looks as if the complaint isn't about the Daily publishing opinion pieces that are anti-ag, it is that the Daily won't publish/ignores/"doesn't see" opinion pieces that are written in response that are "pro-ag" or from the other view point. The Daily is picking and choosing which pieces to publish based on their agenda.

    Somewhat related, I once wrote a column in the Daily in 2005 titled, "How to hate the Hawkeyes." It featured the brilliant line, "Hawkeye running backs blow....ACLs."...I somewhat regret that column, but it did lead to Hawk fans finding my cell phone and email address on the student directory. They made several prank calls and sent me some interesting NSFW pictures. That was fun and a good learning experience.

    Ahh, yes my one claim to fame. I was almost certainly featured in a Just Sayin piece for playing Pokemon in Geology 100. Someone wrote something about growing up and getting a girlfriend. Hilarious part was that my now wife sat beside me in that Geo 100 class we took as seniors. Oh college, never change!

    Aren't students in college to learn? Seems like these Ag students are learning how the real media treats people in the real Ag world.

    I think c.y.c.l.o.n.e.s. is right. There is a ton of left leaning media that does little to mask their predilection to the left. As far as the right goes, it is really a huge stretch to call what goes on there as journalism.

    ISU Daily is to student as Media is to Real World.

    Kinda, I guess.
