At the December 15, 2005 UM Regents’ meeting, three students spoke during Public Comments time, in complaint about the Daily’s racially insensitive cartoons. Only 12 speakers are allowed (5 minutes each, 12×5 is one hour), so a notable proportion of speakers focused on the Daily.
One of the three speakers about the Daily was Alex Moffett (vice-president of the campus NAACP). Coincidentally, someone else also spoke against the Every Three Weekly and some “humor” it had including a manual on how to get first-year (freshwoman) girls drunk and sexually exploit them. So malfeasance and gutter taste in campus publications was a big topic.
If students are willing to go to a Regents’ meeting to complain, maybe their cause is pretty important…
(Little note: the Daily forgot to report this week, that several students spoke against them at the last Regents’ meeting; is that “fair and balanced” of the D?...More to come.)
