Interview
Four campus editors discuss their publications:

link to: College ReportThe Chicago Maroon
Editor: Josh Morgenstern, '01
Founded: 1902

Funding: Advertising revenue

Niche: "The Maroon is the official student newspaper of the University of Chicago; it is the oldest publication at the school and one of the oldest in the city."

Hot type: Presidential search, campus and Midway master plans, and ongoing campus construction

free press
Editor: Andrew Yang, '01
Founded: 1995

Funding: Advertising revenue

Niche: "The free press is a space for social, political, and cultural dialogue--we represent the voice of students and what they care about. We let people speak, and we ask questions."

Hot type: Presidential search, civil-rights attorney and Law School senior lecturer Barack Obama's congressional race, and an alternative campus master plan proposed by architect Michael Sorkin, AB'69

Chicago Weekly News
Editor: Meredith Klein, '02
Founded: 1996

Funding: Advertising revenue
and capital improvement funds for recognized student organizations
Niche: "We cover news stories that are in-depth, daring, and provocative--something that most of our competitors fail to do. Our front page is never just a bunch of articles about lectures that are coming up or lectures that just happened on campus. The CWN also has more in-depth coverage of news in Hyde Park that isn't necessarily related to the University."

Hot type: Core changes, College expansion, campus master plan, and the "blatant misuses" of student activity fee-money

Criterion
Editor: Christopher Naud, '00
Founded: 1996

Funding: Advertising, subscriptions, donations, Student Government, and the Intercollegiate
Studies Institute, a Delaware-based non-profit organization
Niche: "We are, as it says on our cover, 'a journal of conservative thought.' We would like to provide a strong and vocal presence for conservative opinion and commentary across the spectrum to counter the tides of apathy and of common yet widespread libreral misconceptions."

Hot type: Curriculum changes, general campus perception of University policy, and "campus liberalism and leftism in its many shapes and forms."
