Recently, a list of the schools most nostalgic about the Clinton and Reagan administrations was released in a copy of "The Best 357 Colleges," which indicated that Bard College and, not surprisingly, Texas A&M were among the top five in yearning for Clinton and Reagan, respectively.
While the UA did not appear within the top rankings, it would not be surprising to find that many students here reminisce about either Clinton or Reagan.
The comments of UA professors in yesterday's article on the showing of an Al-Jazeera documentary ("Profs sound off on Al-Jazeera documentary") reveal much about the state of the media as well as flawed philosophies behind its idea of objectivity.
Everybody agrees that the media is supposed to be objective. But does objectivity of ideals mean that the American press is supposed to be so "objective" that it must be indifferent as to which country's armed forces ought to be victorious? Do professors at our university really believe that because we had reporters embedded with our forces that we also should have embedded reporters within the Fedayeen or the Republican Guard?
