Recently I have noticed that the Hatchet almost always has basketball on the front page. I understand that it is one of our most popular sports and kind of a staple to GW but is it necessary to have so much time devoted to it. I have also noticed that the Hatchet has gone from kind of a stiff paper to a little bit sensationalised, which my adviser also brought up the other day when we were talking.
I also think it is really interesting that the sports editor is now the chief editor of the paper and that could be why basketball is brought up so much.
Sometimes I just wish the Hatchet would have stories that are more serious than the ones they have been doing, such as in the January 28th issue they have a whole section on spring break and what to wear and how to get a nice body for the season...thats real hard journalism at work I must say.
