"You can't handle the truth"
Periodically, the editor of Wheeling's "newspapers," Mike Myer, devotes a column to examples of political correctness from America's campuses. Myer then scolds these students for their political correctness. (They are, to use right wing slang, "snowflakes."*) For example, here he is three weeks ago, from a column titled "Can We Handle the Truth?":
Journalists report the news. We aren’t supposed to take sides. We surely aren’t supposed to cover the news differently because a bunch of coddled kids see events as “distressing.”
Since when did telling the truth “harm students?”
The corrections photo is the most important element of the story. Why wasn't it included?
Here's an explanation from Ogden's reporter:
(Note that Adams doesn't explain why the picture was not included. Is it because we "can't handle the truth?")
Here's reporter Jake Zuckerman of the Charleston Gazette-Mail's to-the-point response:
*A definition of "snowflake" from Wiktionary:
(slang, derogatory) Someone who believes they are as unique and special as a snowflake; someone hypersensitive to insult or offense, especially a young person with politically correct sensibilities.
