As readers across the world begin, rightfully, to demand greater transparency from their newspapers — college publications included — the Yale Daily News is launching today its new “Inside 202 York Street” feature. (Have a catchier name? Please do not hesitate passing it along.)
Each week, several editors across the newsroom will take questions and constructive feedback from readers. (That’s you.) To submit your inquiry, post it as a comment on this story. The comment will not be immediately published — it will first be intercepted by the online editor — and whether or not you include your name is optional. Before Friday, that editor will sort through the unpublished comments for the best questions and then pose them to several YDN editors, who are announced in advance.
For the feature’s first installment, News Editors Tyler Hill ’09 and Kimberly Chow ’09 will bring you inside the newsroom. Together, they are in charge of all Yale-related coverage, from today’s revelation that a student was arrested last year for defrauding the University to upcoming reporting on the YCC election, Spring Fling and Class Day.
Ask away. We’ll be listening — even if our building is temporarily smothered in scaffolding.
