The Daily Illini

Editorial: For the record

Evan McLaughlin and Lauren Traut

In a Friday Forum published Nov. 19, titled “Not the only one,” a letter writer used misleading and inaccurate material on Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon. The falsified Sharon quote was used by Daily Illini columnist Mariam Sobh in Fall 2003, and she acknowledged its inaccuracy in April 2004.

We strive to not only deliver accurate sports and news coverage, but also fair and accurate information in opinion pieces. The Daily Illini regrets the error of republishing the inaccurate information.
