The Editorial Board of The Mirror would like to offer a public retraction of an article entitled “FUSA Fights for Transparency” that ran in last week’s Nov. 6 issue. The Mirror as an institution is committed to upholding journalistic integrity and proper ethics, and the article in question contained multiple inaccuracies and misquotes that misrepresented those present at the FUSA General Senate Meeting on Oct. 30.
We would like to extend our sincerest apology. The Editorial Board understands the serious nature of this event. The Mirror would never intentionally print factually incorrect information, but rather this mistake comes from a lapse in judgement and an assumption of the correctness of the facts as written by the contributing writer. We promise to do better in the future, as an Editorial Board and an institution, to diligently fact-check and eliminate biases in our reporting, and to use this as an opportunity to learn and improve our means of ethical news coverage.
