Forum Chapman coverage hyped

I was deeply saddened when I saw the front page headlines on NDSU’s cost overruns, which singled out Dr. Joseph Chapman. I agree that the information needed to be put out to the public, but not in such fashion as to potentially damage the university and inevitably the whole area.

Is it not responsible journalism that one weigh the potential damage against the good being accomplished? The Forum has let me down greatly on this one, not for the reporting of the news but for the sensational nature in which it was reported.
