Journal Editorial Board responds to photograph concerns
Journal readers have e-mailed us, voicing concerns about the recent front page photo of Ben Wierzba with the red “VOID” across it.
The Journal would like to apologize to all of those troubled by the photo’s content.
For those who reached out to us, you did not go unnoticed. We respect your concerns and meant no disrespect to Mr. Wierzba nor did we purposefully try to imply flaws in his character. Our intent was to convey the news that Mr. Wierzba had been released from his duties as men’s basketball coach.
As an editorially independent student publication, we stand by our decision, but recognize that we are growing and learning from our experiences.
We wish Mr. Wierzba the best in his future ventures.
