A message received from a Drake alum about the associate professor who hates Republicans and believes they all must suffer

I’m a Drake alum who read Jacob Hall’s article on Beth Younger and I just wanted to note how unbelievably biased his tone was. Incredibly disgusted with your news source and your journalistic quality. Her opinions on her personal Twitter account are not news. What an aggressive attack on someone’s career for sharing opinions on a personal Twitter account.

Examples of his poor tone:

“Gone off the rails”, “disturbing”, “ Unfortunately, Younger seems to be molding them from a place of incredible darkness”

Hope you can improve the quality of your reporting!

We have reached out to the person providing this feedback to see if she also has concerns about the “tone” used by Beth Younger.
