Suggestions to future editors of this article[edit]

Valuable article as it stands, but incomplete. As an article on the paper, it needs more about ongoing publishing and other history; as an article on the event, it would be mistitled and could do with more details on it and earlier instances.

I've treated it as what it says, in which case info on

  • finances,
  • staff recruiting & governance,
  • current and historical columns and regular beats,
  • circulation history, and
  • participation in or origination of syndication,

would all be welcome. --Jerzy 09:05, 2003 Nov 12 (UTC)


Removed some stuff:

"Repeatedly since the 1960s, "

How so?

In addition, it was Dean who was voted out of office in 02. It can't be Bates's reelection campaign. --Jiang

I don't recall the year, but your assertion is false: If Dean was defeated in '02, Bates still could have been irritated in '02 and stolen the papers. Brainhell 16:12, 13 March 2006 (UTC)

OK, I found an article and added the link fromThursday, December 12, 2002:

"The Alameda County District Attorney charged Berkeley Mayor Tom Bates Thursday with theft for stealing 1,000 copies of the Nov. 4 edition of The Daily Californian. In a statement to the Daily Cal, Bates said he will plead guilty to the infraction charge, and will pay the $250 fine. The copies that Bates has admitted to stealing included the endorsement of his opponent in the November election, then-Mayor Shirley Dean."

needs work[edit]

This is unsubstantiated POV:

"These moves, while necessary for the financial success of the newspaper..."

The moves may have undermined the financial 'success' of the paper.

"...began to erode the student foundation that ran the newspaper."

This is unsubstantiated.

"A newspaper run completely by students worked very well..."

POV again.

"...but financial and management problems dampened the first decade of The Daily Californian's independence."

Agreed, but it would be nice to provide support for this statement.

"It was during the early 1990s that The Daily Californian also began to tap its growing group of proud and successful alumni."

No doubt they were "proud and successful" but it sounds like boosterism not appropriate to an encyclopedia. The paper had been organizing alumni before the 1990s, and before the move back to campus. This construction makes it sound like the change occurred after the move.

"The Daily Californian Alumni Association was founded."

One wonders when it actually was founded. Brainhell 16:12, 13 March 2006 (UTC)
