Editing at WU Review #1

Tuesday I had my first experience editing at the review. Overall the articles I edited seemed pretty good except for the fact I felt a lot of the quotes were from people on the newspaper staff or closely related to staffers. I think efforts should be made to get more diversity in the paper and who gives quotes. I know it's easy to ask friends for quotes, but in the real world journalists can't just ask their friends.

I noticed many of the students working in the office are not mass media majors or if they are mass media majors they were not people I recognized. I edited about 5 different articles.
