Analysis of the Daily O'collegian Coverage of Campus Controversies, 1989-90�

Lancaster, Jack Alan
Because the author also serves as the editorial adviser for The Daily O'Collegian, precautions were taken to avoid a conflict of interest and ensure the accuracy of this endeavor to analyze coverage of campus issues in academic year 1989-90. First, the study omits the adviser's role in the coverage so that observations would not be misconstrued as the author's opinions or inferences. Information in the thesis is based on published reports and personal interviews except for that under discussion headings. For the record, however, the adviser's role in the coverage was merely in an advisory capacity to encourage aggressive but responsible and ethical coverage of the issues.
