Letter to the Editor: The Chronicle is unprofessional for endorsing a party


I am appalled at the lack of professionalism The Chronicle showed by endorsing Students First.

Obviously, you forgot that the first rule of journalism is to stay objective and to not let your opinion show. In politics especially, journalists can’t let their views and opinions shine through.

You failed to mention that all the editors at The Chronicle probably have personal reasons for supporting Ali Hasnain.

He was an editor for The Chronicle, so I’m sure he has friends on the staff.

I understand that an opinion page is a place for anyone to say what they want.

You are stating the feelings of the entire newspaper, so even though you may try to justify it by putting it on the opinion page, it is still unprofessional.

You used the newspaper as your own personal forum to support a friend. It isn’t right and shame on you for doing so.

Brynn Russon

Senior, Mass Communication

Editor’s Note: The Chronicle’s opinion appears on the Opinion page of the paper. Ali Hasnain resigned as News Editor more than a year ago.
