Last week the Daily Tar Heel, a student news publication at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, home to one of the country’s top journalism schools, ran this column by one of its staff members entitled “Depth of My Trump Anger.”
You know what? Don’t even bother clicking on the link. Let me sum it up for you: the author simply states “Trump is the worst” 154 times in a row.
That The Daily Tar Heel would run a so-called “column” like this clearly communicates that the publication has no interest in credible journalism. Their liberal bias previously made their integrity questionable, but it is now abundantly clear from this poorly worded rant session that they’ve abandoned any attempt to be considered a serious news source at all. This has nothing to do with the fact that the “column” in question slights President Trump.
Repeating the same phrase 154 times without punctuation, regardless of what the phrase it, is not clever. And it certainly does not qualify as journalism. Students, and parents should be outraged.

For clarification, The Daily Tar Heel is an independent paper. It’s unaffiliated with UNC’s journalism school and receives no taxpayer dollars or student fees.
Also, a newspaper’s opinion desk is autonomous from its newsroom. There is no overlap.
Have a great one!

I would expect nothing more from the brain dead libidiots being molded by these socialist professors who couldn’t survive in a socialist country.
I sure hope that free speech will remain free and that the adult administrators work hard to guarantee free expression, dialogue and debate.
The liberal socialists academia spews forth its hate of conservatives and Donald Trump in particular is lapped up by young skulls full of mush and a couple years later they end up on the staff of NYT, or your choice of fake news outlets. The NYT hard news division and editorial division is a distinction without a difference. As long as you have George Soros pumping money into the pockets of these professional protestors the fake news business will continue.
You would think if these communist teachers at UNC believed their garbage they would teach for nothing.
I’d say she perfectly represents the average level of intelligence, wit, and charm of everyone on the left.
