After working hand in hand with the school board, we almost destroyed the last source of written word that contains fact. Just think: we were one step away from the only DHS school news being the Flipside! I don’t see any fault in logic with that decision. We could have saved a whole bunch of money. Plus, we could completely ignore reality, especially that needless criticism of the administration.
I’ll be honest with you, for once. I had four Deerprints editors submit me, (me!), articles this week. So. Much. Power. Of course, they were bashing the admin for cutting their first amendment rights or something, but I wasn’t really listening. The admin told me I only need to know three things: they are always right, the new principal will be great, and war is peace.
At the end of the day, it looks like everything worked out as well as the Jay Cutler deal. And thank goodness the newspaper is not a dying industry.
