DI only hurts itself

Reader comment on item: Daily Illini Bias Against My USIP Appointment

Submitted by Brent West (United States), Dec 10, 2003 at 11:47

As a current student, I know firsthand the DI's radicalism. However, it is not limited to the DI staff. A loyal following of equally radical readers allow the DI to continue to print what basically amounts to predispositions and uncorroborated "facts." To be fair, there are some moderates and even conservative opinion columnists but they are often harassed by readers for their viewpoints. All I can hope is that by my presence and voice, I can help pull the liberal/conservative ratio in my favor.
