    Both your and Emma Hsu’s views on this topic have their merits, and they both certainly have places in the school newspaper. To be clear, there are absolutely no restrictions placed on staff writers for the content of their articles, so the statement that the school paper “needs to allow for opposing views” is redundant – it already does so. The reason why no article supporting your view has been published is that the paper values independent thinking in writing, and thus does not assign topics to writers in an effort to let them choose to write on what they feel strongly about. Regardless of this fact, however, the paper has actually published several articles with opposing views responding to other articles from the paper, and it is made very clear that these articles are connected. Some articles of the sort from the past include the following:
    The constructive criticism is appreciated and all that, but I think it is important for you and others to know that the Sword & Shield does not “brainwash” anyone or force any one of its writers to adopt a certain opinion – the opinions expressed in the Sword & Shield are completely the writers’ own. I am not even a part of the production and I know this – it seems like you have either jumped to conclusions or inadvertently made a generalization that you did not mean to sound the way does.
    As a side note, I think it’s really cool that, as an alumnus, you have decided to stay connected with and support Uni’s newspaper.

    This article shows a lack of understanding of current world affairs and the United States Constitution. It is another example of liberal brainwashing in our school system. The school paper needs to allow for opposing views. The Senate duty is to advise the President and ratify treaties. However, this president refuses to work with Congress and instead prefers to impose his unilateral views on the country. The history of Iran show that it would never allow nuclear inspections. Their goals are to destroy Israel, our ally, and the US. How can you negotiate with an enemy that wants to kill you? I respect Emma Hsu’s liberal views. But the paper needs to pulish opposing views at the same time to appeal to a wider audience. This will definitely improve the UHS newspaper and make it more similar to an official newspaper.
