The Grammys Are Rigged. And Here's Proof.
Mei Dotzler, Reporter • April 7, 2021

No one's surprised that the Grammys this year were a complete and utter disaster, not because of the performances, but because of the Recording Academy's annual tradition of exploiting and shutting out the nation's favorite artists. Year after year, the Grammys prove their underlying biases in the industry by nominating obscure underground artists, continuously snubbing the artists that truly deserve...

Gun Reform Discussions
March 30, 2021

Covid-19 wasn't just a tough pandemic for businesses, it also affected gun owners. Shooting ranges were shut down, but a lot of people were still itching to shoot something. Statistics from gunviolencezrchive.org show 43,534 firearm deaths in the US in 2020. Out of the statistics, I gathered that around half, 19,378, were from suicide. The remaining portion has been verified to be from causes such...

The Thing About Cancel Culture
The Thing About Cancel Culture
Krystal Orehek, Reporter • March 9, 2021

The term "cancel culture" has come a long way. I remember using it with my friends back in 2018 when discussing pop culture, but now there are grown adults using it as political fuel. The ultimate question now is whether or not cancel culture has developed into something entirely too toxic and should be canceled itself, ironically enough. Let's talk about someone who has been successfully "canceled", ...

Arctic Monkeys- So Underrated
Lia Ghirardi, Reporter • February 19, 2021

In today's day and age, the majority of this generation listens to rap, and not the good stuff. The rhyming of money and narcotics is not always something that wants to be heard. A way better alternative is the English indie rock band Arctic Monkeys. Listening to them is pleasing to the ear, unlike all of today's current hip hop. Alex Turner is the lead singer of the band and his voice never dissapoints....

Survivor- The Flagbearer of Great Reality TV
Alexzander (AJ) Braaten, Reporter • April 15, 2021

Reality Television is... let's just say a mixed bag. Sometimes you'll get entertainment, other times drama, or maybe it just completely falls flat due to whoever is on screen. There are so many shows that fit under the umbrella of Reality TV, as long as the people in front of the camera are not paid actors reading off a script. Everybody has their favorites, but in my opinion they all pale in comparison...
