Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 14, No. 9. July 26, 1951

Salient's Duty

Salient's Duty

In this issue we publish an article about the free press, a reply to three correspondents. Most of the readers of Salient will (know that some of the accusations made are true, but most will also know that our press is much more free than those newspapers which echo not "the screaming prejudices of capitalism" but the screaming prejudices of red fascism.

An article which pretends to speak of freedom of the press and yet presents such a partial treatment, a condemnations of only one offender stinks of hypocrisy. Salient's shackles have been forged. We do not pay enough attention to affairs within the College. This is the result of a policy which, until 1950, was directed at the preaching of a cause. Salient is called a red rag to this day, not because it was or is radical but because until 1950 that tag was true. Salient was only free to display its bias and in that It was no better than the Press C.B. takes so much space to condemn.
