The Michigan Daily - Wednesday, November 30, 2005 - 7
Continued from page 1
The campaign will also include
a hate and bias hotline, 764-BIAS,
operated by the Office of Institu-
tional Equity, which will also pro-
vide training for responding to hate
crimes, Harper said.
At the campaign's launch, Harper said
the University will spearhead an aggres-
sive advertising campaign of posters as
well as bus and newspaper ads to raise
awareness on the necessity of respecting
campus diversity, Harper said.
In part, the campaign is a response
to student concerns surrounding
recent alleged hate crimes on cam-
pus, notably the purported incident
on Sept. 15, when two students
allegedly hurled racial slurs and
urinated on two Asian students.
Campaign planning began shortly
after the alleged incident, when Uni-
versity officials began organizing
forums and meeting with student
groups about how to improve the
Most recently, campaign develop-
ers met with the Student Advisory
Board of the Office of the Dean
of Students to get feedback on the
planned advertisements and meth-
ods to spread awareness about exist-
Harper said the campus is very
open in some respects regarding
diversity, but closed in others.
"What I like to say to people is
that we're not as bad as people like
to say we are and we're not as good
as we aspire to be," she said.
Harper added that while iso-
lated incidents might always occur
because of a lack of common sense
or loss of control, what the Univer-
sity can do is improve education.
Peterson said the definition of a
hate crime is often unclear - a pre-
dicament that leads to difficulties
when addressing the problem.
The University hopes to clarify
this by clearly communicating the
values of the University community,
At the meeting, Harper also
expressed her fear that the Michigan
Civil Rights Initiative, an upcoming
2006 statewide ballot proposal that
would ban race-based admissions at
public universities in Michigan will
divide the campus and create a hos-
tile environment. She urged student
leaders to unify the campus regard-
less of the outcome of the ballot

down the news."
"By dumbing down the news, we've dumbed
down the public," he said.
Fenton said U.S. news organizations ignore some
of the most important stories.
For example, he said he offered to conduct an
exclusive interview with Osama bin Laden in
1997 but was turned down by his editors at CBS.
He added that reporters have mostly neglected
to investigate why 95 percent of shipping con-
tainers aren't checked for the possibility that
they contain bombs or other dangerous weap-
ons, though a recent report in The Baltimore
Sun documenting lapses in port security spurred
local officials to institute stricter security poli-
Fenton said another problem is that most for-
eign news is gathered from wire services.
He said U.S. news organizations should have
more permanent correspondents in the Muslim
world and sub-Saharan Africa and that reporters
in Muslim countries are not providing thorough
coverage out of fear for their safety.
Fenton also took aim at America's public health
system, calling it "woefully unprepared" for a
biological attack and potential outbreaks such as
the avian flu.
He said the solution to the problems that plague
American media is to write about what's smart
and meaningful and beneficial to the audience. He
said journalists need to ask themselves not whether
people want to know something, but whether they
need to know it.
"You're the early-morning messenger," he said.
"It's our job to look down the road and tell you
what's coming. That role should never change."

be listening to."
"Now I know there's a lot of
voices in Washington," Bush added.
"We've heard some people say pull
them out right now. That's a huge
mistake. It'd be a terrible mistake. It
sends a bad message to our troops.
And it sends a bad message to our
enemy. And it sends a bad message
to the Iraqis."
Rumsfeld said the president would
outline in detail his plans for help-
ing the Iraqis take control of their
"The strategy is working, and we
should stick to it," Rumsfeld said.
The U.S. strategy has been built
on an expectation that training a
competent Iraqi security force and
facilitating the election of a demo-
cratic government would stabilize
the country and allow a gradual
U.S. military exit, possibly starting
Rumsfeld ticked off several indi-
cators of progress on the military
U.S. forces have turned over
control of about 29 military bases
to the Iraqis.
Baghdad's once-violent Haifa
Street is now more peaceful and
under the control of an Iraqi army
The Iraqi army has seven divi-
sion and 31 brigade headquarters in
operation, compared with none in
e The number of Iraq army bat-
talions "in the fight" has grown
to 95, compared to five in August
On Monday, a U.S. military
spokesman in Baghdad said the
number was 100, plus 30 battalions
of Iraqi Special Police. Pentagon
spokesman Maj. Todd Vician said
the 100 total includes five Iraqi spe-
cial forces battalions.
Rumsfeld did not mention the
recent call by Rep. John Murtha
(D-Pa.) to begin immediately to
withdraw U.S. troops, but he posed
the question of whether the United
States would be better off leaving
"I believe the answer is clear," he
said. "Quitting is not an exit strate-
gy. It would be a formula for putting
the American people at still greater
risk and an invitation for more ter-
Rumsfeld said the more the
insurgents in Iraq "make it sound
as though we are going to quit or
lose," the more encouraged they
will become and the more success-
ful they will be in raising money
and recruiting insurgents.
