The Scout Editors have received many responses — positive and negative — about last weekend’s Valentine’s Day issue.
We hear those concerns loud and clear.
We want our readers to know that we take every comment into consideration, and our staff is always open to self-reflection and change. We know we can do better — across all sections of the paper.
The process before publication is intensive, where many discussions take place amongst our editors and writers. Before publishing this latest issue, editors had many conversations about issues that included the very concerns some readers brought forward. That dialogue is still taking place among our staff and with our readers.
We want The Scout to be as inclusive as possible in its perspectives as we continue to tackle topics relevant to Bradley students, covering serious news and reflecting the voices of the student body. We’ve had many discussions since Friday morning on how we can do so – and do it well for the entire Bradley community.
We continue to encourage constructive criticism from readers, and we’ll work to incorporate it as we move forward. Our sincere thanks for everyone whose thoughts help The Scout get better every week.
