It's been three years now...and TheRadikal.com has stirred up quite a lot action in UF-SG, but I can always count on the Alligator ignoring the blog. Your news was discussed on my site months before you publish it, but I digress. I'm not looking for this letter to be published, but I'm wondering how this paper takes to being duped by Paul Drayton. Read statements made by Rene Medina to my site and then compare them to the statements Paul Drayton made to your paper. Drayton was unable to live up to his OWN STANDARDS for even a calendar month from publication of your story.
Could your staff reporter been any kinder to Reilly & his cohorts? How about getting reporters that ask tough questions and I don't know, maybe write about how strange it is that the Student Body President has re-written the duties of the Student Body Treasurer, SG's second highest post out of thin air, TOTALLY contradicting the Student Body Constitution?
I wonder if the staff reporter would be a good candidate for electroshock therapy, perhaps your entire editorial board could look for a facility nearby that might give group rates.
