after it decided to suspend him from the
basketball team. He added it was Horton
who sought initial contact with Martin
and that the meeting took place after the
University already made its decision.
Evelyn believes the decision to sus-
pend Horton from the basketball team
stems from how the Athletic Depart-
ment has handled past legal situations
involving student athletes.
"I felt they would be fair and that they
would be individual in how they looked
at this, and he wouldn't be inheriting the
baggage of the University's prior mis-
takes, involving other people," Evelyn
said. "He got hit with somebody else's
mistakes he had nothing to do with
before he came here, and now they are
making him pay for it, and I don't think
it was fair."
Horton pleaded guilty to a misde-
meanor domestic violence charge on

"The results of this uncritical style of re)

But College Republicans member and
junior Jeston La Croix said he believes Ami
entered the war for justified reasons, beside
weapons of mass destruction.

as they had before," Zarko said.
The report also finds that, if passed, MCRI could
eliminate a variety of different programs in Michigan
including "community and public health programs,
such as breast, cervical and prostate cancer screening,
breastfeeding promotion, or prenatal smoking cessation"
because they are gender-specific.
"(The) proposal may also damage the health care
available to hundreds of thousands of women in this state
and create a situation where programs aimed at health
and spouse abuse are eliminated," said David Waymire,
spokesman for Citizens for a United Michigan, an orga-
nization that opposes MCRI.
The report specifically references a lawsuit filed in
California by the Los Angeles chapter of the National
Coalition of Free Men, in which the group sued battered
women's shelters for violating the state constitution by
being gender-specific and hoped state funding to the pro-
gram would be eliminated.
The courts ultimately upheld the funding because of a
California statute that protects programs serving women
and minorities. However, the report states that Michigan
does not have such a law.
But Tim O'Brien, treasurer of the MCRI Ballot Ques-
tion Committee, said public health programs are not vul-
nerable under MCRI.
"The proposal makes an exception for medical
research and medical programs and makes an excep-
tion that these things will not apply where gender and
ethnicity is a required component," O'Brien said. "Other
things that would be protected are athletic programs that
are gender-based, and there is an exception for gender or
ethnicity in the performing arts."
The portion of the proposal O'Brien referred to reads,
"Nothing in this section shall be interpreted as prohibiting
bona fide qualifications based on sex that are reasonably
necessary to the normal operation of public employment,
public education, or public contracting."
But critics points out that Proposition 209 also includ-
ed such language, yet the state entertained lawsuits like
the one against the women's shelters.
Waymire said he believes that, despite the clause,
MCRI might have a hidden agenda and the proposal
might have unintended consequences.
"No one should doubt the agenda of these extrem-
ists," Waymire said. "Their agenda is to push Michigan
and the country back to the 1950s, before the civil rights
movement, when women and minorities had virtually no
rights, and the entire country suffered because of it."
arsenal they found ... is sufficient evidence that
there were, are, or could have been weapons of
that nature," La Croix added.
Amy Goodman said a study by Fairness &
Accuracy in Reporting, a media watch orga-
nization that criticizes biased reporting and
censorship, found that during the week for-
mer Secretary of State Colin Powell gave his
speech to the United Nations, only three of
the 393 interviews broadcasted by four major
networks covering the war - ABC, CBS,
NBC and PBS - featured anti-war represen-
"This was at a time when most people were
for diplomacy, yet instead the media was beat-
ing the drums for war," she said.
La Croix did not share the speakers' percep-
tion that the media at time was pushing for
"The media was not helping stir the cause for
the war. I think the media seems more anti-war
than anything. I think that the perceptions due
to the terrorist attacks may have strengthened
the cause, but I don't think the media exagger-
ated anything. If anything, I think they fought
against entering the war," La Croix said.
Amy Goodman added that corporatization of
the media makes it difficult for many different
voices to be heard.
"We are not talking about fringe minority or
even a silent majority, but a silenced majority
silenced by the corporate media," she said.
After her closing speech, Amy Goodman
received a standing ovation.
RC Junior Tara Smith said this gesture was
merited because the event exposed deeply
entrenched media biases.
"She was enthralling. Her message was sim-
ple - we need to bring reality into perspective.
Things that seem radical in the media are really
not as extreme as they seem.
