The following sections will eventually be added to the McGill Daily wiki article. There is substantial evidence supporting the claims below and citations will be provided. Instead of simply deleting the entire sections in an attempt to censor this information, please try to improve the sections by making them more neutral.

Student Discontent[edit]

In recent years, individuals and student groups have accused the newspaper of various forms of misconduct (inaccurate representation, lying by omission, violating basic journalistic ethics and publishing propaganda). These accusations generally intensify during student elections. Other students have expressed frustration with their perception that the writers and editors take a one sided and biased approach to the topics on which they report, calling for a more neutral newspaper.70.24.209.152 (talk) 13:37, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

OhNoItsJamie[edit]

I do not know how to communicate with you, since I can not edit your talk page. I will try to communicate with you here. I will add reliable and verifiable sources for the sections listed above.

Please let me know why the following does not require a citation:

Since 1980, The Daily has been independent from student government. It is published by the Daily Publications Society, whose membership automatically includes all McGill undergraduate students and most graduate students. It is the most widely distributed free student publication at McGill. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 174.91.222.3 (talk) 20:32, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

I've already added content about opposition to the non-opt-out fee increase, with a source. If you can find additional WP:Reliable sources that support additional content, feel free to add it. OhNoitsJamie Talk 23:31, 29 March 2010 (UTC)
