On Monday Nov. 16, the Communications Department had the opportunity to sit it on the Editorial Board Meeting at the Chicago Tribune.
The Board welcomed Renner Larson, Communications Coordinator, and four communications interns to contribute to the discussion. As the Board discussed possible editorials, the conversation went from media coverage of the Nov. 13 attacks in Paris and lack thereof for Beirut; how technology affects the way young people consume their news, school shootings and our often false sense of security, to a much larger question: what, if any, is the right response to these acts of terrorism? If so, what is it?
“The experience was a lesson in articulating my ideas in a way that would form a stronger argument,” she said.
