There Should At Least Be Relevancy in What is Reported

To the Editor:

While I realize that deadlines must be met, and time constraints can seriously affect final product, is it necessary to mention that an Assembly meeting is reminiscent of past Assemblies and then to specifically name Danielle Moore '95 and Rukmini Sichitiu '95?

In your article yesterday ["Assembly endorses ethnic studies courses," May 7, 1997, The Dartmouth], it seemed repetitive and unfair to twice mention the past. "News" and information about the present are not enhanced by constant spitting on ghosts of the past.

The "meat" of the article ought not be on page 6. What do Rukmini and Danielle have to do with what was discussed in SA last night? Nothing.

Please refrain from attacking individuals that cannot defend themselves and try to cover the "news" of today.

There is no such thing as unbiased reporting, but there should at least be relevancy in what is reported.
