Rutgers University is investigating as a bias incident a student newspaper's spoof column praising Adolf Hitler.
The column, "What about the good things Hitler did?", appeared Wednesday in the satirical newspaper the Daily Medium, which is funded in part by Rutgers.
"The Boston Police Department today sought criminal complaints against 14 suspects in an alleged hazing incident involving five Boston University students who were found bound, beaten, and covered in condiments.
Investigators are seeking to charge the suspects with hazing, assault and battery, and failure to report hazing, officials said."
We at The Daily Free Press want to apologize for the callous and ignorant stories we ran in our annual print-only April Fools’ Day issue on Monday, April 2.
We want to stress that all of the ill-conceived jokes in Monday’s issue in no way represent the true values of The Daily Free Press or any of its staff members. While we do not support any of the stereotypes that we wrongly spread in the issue, we know that by publishing the material we inadvertently proliferated them. We know that even though the stories were meant to be jokes, simply writing them perpetuated rape culture.
We thank our readers as ever for their passionate input. We aim to learn from our mistakes and to move forward, continuing to strive to serve as the independent student voice of the university in a rigorously balanced and sensitive manner.
