Opinion As News

The SAEN is constantly guilty of packaging opinions as news, and today is no exception. First, the front page article "Some say inaugural costs out of control" is nothing more than the regurgitate of the DNC's talking points. Nowhere is the story identified as an opinion. Moreover, if the story's author, Rebeca Rodrigues had bothered to spend 30 seconds on google she could have found out that donors to the inauguration have give upwards of $30 million to tsunami relief efforts, but she left that little tidbit out so that she could make the charge that the money would be better spent that way. It's absolutely shameful.
