An Oregon State University student newspaper article titled "The Islamic Double Standard" led to the inevitable protests, of course, but also something more ... intriguing:
“The pain that it caused ... did not subside with time,” said DD Bixby, the Barometer’s editor-in-chief. “It kind of just festered.”
She said editors have been checking copy with Muslim students, and on Tuesday deleted one paragraph from a piece scheduled to be published the next day.
Bixby said her staffers are “all pretty much Oregon-type kids” who knew little about Islam and didn’t foresee how people would respond to the column.
Maybe The Barometer is on to the next big thing on college campuses -- having different "aggrieved" groups edit "offensive" and "disrespectful" text from student newspapers.
All in the name of "tolerance" and "diversity," of course!
