The story published at this URL on Monday, Nov. 13 was inaccurate because of reporting mistakes made by the freelance writer. Unfortunately, the article contained information obtained from sources who believed what they said would neither be used for publication nor used in the context in which it was. As such, publishing the story violated an essential tenet of ethical journalism. It is the policy of The Collegian's editor to always correct significant factual errors as quickly as possible and to denote these changes with an editor's note. In this case — an unprecedented one for our staff — the article needed to be retracted and will not be reposted. The Collegian editors will continue to review the material and will report accurately and ethically on any follow up stories we deem necessary for our readers.
