No negative news?

San Luis ObispoFebruary 21, 2014 

Does The Tribune have an agreement with Cal Poly to not report on negative Cal Poly news? I have been getting more local news from Mustang News and Cal Coast News and the very late reporting by The Tribune of “6 hospitalized, 14 arrested at Poly event,” (Feb. 5).

I do want to hear the good stuff about the Cal Poly Chocolates and the poinsettia sales, etc., but you are doing the community a disservice by not reporting the negatives. Whatever happened to the coach shot in a drug deal gone bad? What about the suicides of students not reported? You owe it to the community to report that we are no longer SLO town, but speeding rapidly toward Isla Vista.

The Tribune is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
