This is one of the editorials I wrote periodically for Carnegie Mellon’s student paper, The Tartan. I wrote this particular editorial in response to public outcry about’s “General Betray Us” ad and other similar comments on the administration.


This article is intended for the readers of the Tartan, a group composed primarily of undergraduate students but also including graduate students, faculty and staff.


In the process of writing this article, I:

  • Researched recent events related to my topic, including comments by Presidential candidates, members of Congress, and the editorial boards of other student papers.
  • Outlined the article.
  • Wrote and edited the article.
