EDITORIAL: Competition breeds better journalism

By on February 22, 2012

You probably noticed a different print publication spread around campus on Tuesday. The Quad News, a formerly online-only newspaper unaffiliated with Quinnipiac, published its first print edition and distributed it to students.

We don’t know how frequently we can expect to see this publication in print, but the Chronicle editorial board feels this move can help improve the quality of journalism in both our online and print platforms.

A second publication that focuses primarily on Quinnipiac updates helps breed better journalism by pressuring the other to report information faster while still maintaining a high standard of accuracy.

Like The Quad News, the Chronicle has the right to free speech in its content and there is no censorship from any level on the work produced by students. The university’s policy that caused the Chronicle to split in 2008 is no longer enforced, and has not been imposed in our editorial board’s tenure.

While we are officially recognized by the university, this only means we receive funding from Quinnipiac in addition to the advertising revenue we raise.

We will continue to publish our content in a weekly print edition and also update our website 24/7.
