"Things that individual college students say – no matter how outlandish – are almost never newsworthy," writes Erik Angner. "Stories about those students are mostly uninteresting and irrelevant. Serious journalists who write those stories should reconsider their career and life choices." He offers several reasons why this is the case and makes a good argument that we should not get heated up in response. College students are numerous, and diverse, he writes, which means no one student is representative of them. And they are learning, which means they're going to make mistakes.
