I had been under the mercifully mistaken impression that Der Stürmer, the Nazi newspaper edited by Joseph Goebbels, had long ago ceased publication.

On Monday, Stanford Politics published a story questioning The Daily’s print circulation — and our content. As a newspaper, we welcome feedback from our readers and are committed to responsiveness and transparency in keeping with our journalistic mission. However, we found several of the claims made by the article disturbing upon reflection — not because they disparaged our paper, but because they misled readers.

Not just in recruiting but in campus culture as a whole, we need to do a better job of integrating ourselves into the Stanford community, and showing everybody what The Daily can do for them.
