“Student complaints about Daily at 12/15 Regents’ meeting” which mentioned Alex Moffett, I note that the Daily, in Monday’s “Amid controversy, NAACP VP resigns: Prompted by state NAACP chapter, divisive vice president Alex Moffett steps down”, calls Moffett “divisive” with little reason, perhaps—as she herself notes at her Xanga website,
”...but in light of recent events i’ve realized that certain powers that be at the university of michigan (namely the michigan daily) have devoided me of every inch of privacy i had left. my personal phone number has been recklessly abused by the majority of their staff. countless requests to please stop calling have been ignored. between the calls on my personal phone, the emails, intrusion onto my facebook page… and finally… quoting my XANGA on the front page of the michigan daily. i have had enough…”
The Daily has actually done some good work recently, e.g., their editorial condemning Michigamua’s racist ethos. Still, their Moffett article (I hope it was not at all in reprisal for her condemning the Daily at a UM Regents’ meeting) makes me wonder. ...Also, today they put the Coretta Scott King obituary on page 2, not the front page, and consigned her name to the smaller print, “Martin Luther King’s wife passes away at 78: Coretta Scott King became a civil rights leader after her husband’s death”. (Shouldn’t she have been front-paged???)
“NEED MONEY FOR spring break? Attractive females wanted for nude and semi nude [sic] modeling. Great pay, flexible hours. 734-[ ]-[ ].”I wonder how many women have been drugged/raped/killed over the years after answering ads for nudie stuff. A slutty and dangerous monstrosity, certain ads are.)
Well, I hope Donn “Gripped as if by the pangs of some insatiable parasitic beast” (from the 1/27 Daily’s Jeopardy, uh, “Silly Senior Salute Something” issue) Fresard is looking around for a worthy female and/or minority successor.
God bless you Coretta. We need you more than ever.
