is the student-run weekly entertainment and comedy newspaper at Rutgers University
. While now more of a general humor publication similar to that of The Onion
, it has a history of criticism due to its sometimes politically incorrect
nature. The paper refers to itself as "The Entertainment Weekly of Rutgers University."
As a result of frequent attacks on their right to print offensive material, the editors and contributors of The Medium
have turned the paper into a veritable exercise of their First Amendment Rights
. Nearly all protests against The Medium
have been largely ineffective because of the University's commitment to democracy.
The front pages of The Medium
provide a satirical look at actual Rutgers and world news.
The Opinions section contains the Editor in Chief's weekly address (although this is not so much the case any longer) as well as editorial essays from Rutgers students and The Medium'
s staff writers.
Features includes an array of various content and articles ranging from submission contests to staff biographies, satiric charts and how-to guides.
Student artwork, crosswords, art and music reviews, and cartoons usually appear in this section.
Anonymous messages are printed in the newspaper classifieds style, allowing students to freely criticize Rutgers administration, other students and national establishments.
