Losing Student Media

Some student magazine editors have come under pressure to change the way they have reported on their associations. This hasn’t gone down so well. Wood recalls that as he was coming into the role of editor at Salient, he was asked at the budget setting meeting if he would write “stupid stuff” about VUWSA. “I replied, ‘of course I will, if you do stupid things. If not, then you’ve got nothing to worry about’.” There’s no way Wood would have not reported on VUWSA’s refusal to lay a wreath on Anzac Day – a story that made national headlines. “If ACT hadn’t quoted Salient about the mess-ups of the exec, they would have come down even harder on Salient for trying to cover it up.
