“Seeking Writers for The Envoy” – The Never Ending Lament

Friday, July 1st, 2011

This intended spring 2011 post, below, is just seeing the light of day.

From: “Ming Fearon, Chui-Hung Wong”

Dear Hunter students + staff:
I’m trying to get the word out about The Envoy, Hunter College’s print newspaper.

The complete lament of the Envoy Editor-in-Chief rests at the end of this post. In between this sentence and that lament is a succinct accounting of student journalism at the College and undergraduate journalism in D:F/M, both waddling in a bad states of affairs.

Student journalism and subsequently D:F/M undergraduate journalism were hijacked many years ago, dumped in a septic tank of woe, essentially for  students serious about journalism as a career or interest. It didn’t have to be that way.
