Mmm ... journalistic integrity.

Guy: (talking about articles he writes for The Gazette) And I don't even have to worry about misquoting them because I can just fill in the blanks myself!

Oh wow, you're a douchebag. I mean, as if you're taking an out-of-context joke seriously. The Gazette is one of the best-written, most professional student newspapers in the country. If you don't believe me, call any of the major national newspapers (Globe and Mail, National Post) who have hired former Gazette editors because of the high quality of their work and the incredible reputation of the paper.

Wow, Sarah, you need to get a life, in case you haven't noticed, a good half of the "overheard at Western" contributions are out of context, that doesn't mean they aren't still funny. It's people like you who are killing humour in the world. For the betterment of society, you need to be shot.

Either way, I've written letters into the gazette and they've been paraphrased and edited to fit a point of view that was essentially different than the one I wrote. The gazette was better when it had those cute obnoxious little penguins.

Every student newspaper is dominated by arts students with nothing better to do, for a much more interesting read, please see your local engineering society newspaper.

^ Motto: "We have an ill-founded superiority complex because we were beat in up high school ... repeatedly ... OH GOD TOMMY STEPHENSON WHY'D YA HAVE TO DO THAT TO ME IN THE BOYS' LOCKER ROOM!"

I like how all you cute li'l undergrads argue and pretend any of your degrees are worth something. It's time to stop the fighting, people, and pick up your post-graduate mops together!

I know my Ph.D in post-modern literature on femenism has surely helped me in today's technology-driven job market.

The engineering paper I read had instructions on how to use my campus newspaper as a free and effective replacement for toliet paper. It really was the best use anyone could think of.

You should think about that.

I'm in science, I write for the Gazette, personally, looking at other campus newspapers/western news/rez newsletters/eng society crap, i've got to say that the gazette does a pretty amazing job.

If you don't like it, don't read it. A lot of people like the Gazette, so it's all good.

Now CHRW on the other hand... :/

I think the Gazette proved its status as B.S. when it published that ass-kissing profile on "USC President Good Guy".
