Regarding the ‘Asians’ satire
The Campus Press can be the most frustrating labor of love a majority of the time, but none of us would trade our time and effort with this publication for anything.
We hope that, as managing editors, our readers understand we would never, under any circumstances, make a decision to consciously harm the reputation of this newspaper, which has taken decades to establish.
Max Karson’s Monday opinion, “If it’s war the Asians want.,” has clearly upset a large segment of our readership, and for that, we owe it to those who were offended by the article to maintain the highest level of journalistic integrity and sincerely apologize to anyone who was hurt by this article.
Karson’s opinion is satire and is a commentary on racism at CU published in our opinion section, not presented as fact or incitement, and not published to intentionally incite controversy. We apologize for any ambiguity of the satire that may have been misconstrued.
The Campus Press, as the only true vehicle for student voice to the CU community, offers a unique chance for aspiring journalists to learn this craft, and we are exploring a new and continuously evolving medium on a springboard to the professional world.
Like all aspiring journalists, we will learn from this experience and better our publication. The Campus Press has always been, and will continue to be, a source for credible university news and a voice for this student body.
