Crimson First Edition Released to Mixed Reviews

Posted on January 19, 2012


Today, a new cutting edge periodical unveiled itself on campus to a thoroughly lukewarm reception.  “What’s a crimdon?” queried Junior Daniel Weisman, thoughtfully.  “Oh, red?  No, I like blue better.”  Other reviews among the student populus were similarly unenthusiastic, ranging from confusion, “what are you talking about?” (Senior, Andy Velasco), to denial, “Do you know where Carlson Hall is? (Sophomore, Angela Williams)”  These students’ confusion is corroborated by this journalist.  Upon first perusal, the Crimson is rife with factual inaccuracies.  The political piece of page 13 is particularly unprofessional, with sweeping, generalized statements and thoughtless analysis.  Coupled with copious grammatical errors and an apparent vocabulary deficit on behalf of the journalists, it looks like the “crimson” in this instance refers to nothing but the blood from our wounded literary minds.  The Crimson is presenting Clark students with subpar journalism, but evidently, Clark students’ standards are higher than that.
