    Young people are spoon fed media by their parents. That's why we have transgender 5 year olds. Also the fake media on Facebook. They also get their news from kids on the playground. Who again get their news from terrible sources. I honestly dont see why they need to be informed of news anyway. Worry about making something of yourself. You can do stupid shit later when you are an adult.

    I think the Kyle kid whose Harvard admission was rescinded is probably an overzealous white male whose had every opportunity handed to him on a silver platter, and who is VERY likely prejudiced against people of colour. That being said, in this day and age it's extremely difficult not to have some prejudice, at least implicitly. I am sure he holds a million values and opinions I would vehemently disagree with him on, however his past words should not have had this great an impact. I have said so many racist things in jest in private conversations with my friends that it would be hypocritical of me -- and surely of many other young adults -- to pass judgement on Kyle. If Harvard is so interested in the prejudices of their students, their application process should include a more objective test of racism/any other -ism or -phobia than sifting through comments and accepting screenshots of private conversations. I understand that looking for PATTERNS of aggression and -isms in applicants' social media is useful, but catching the odd statement should either 1) have no consequence or 2) flag the applicant for further interviewing/testing before admission.

    I know from the perspective of Harvard, it would be a massive waste of resources to further scrutinize applicants when they receive such a large volume of applications that every red flag can easily (and from their perspective, usefully) be an automatic out. However, such a process could not possibly ensure their students are the best of the best. They're just selecting students with no online presence, or a careful online presence -- neither of which cases eliminates the possibility that the applicant is a raging racist. A racist can be careful, anonymous, calculated. A racist who's applying to Harvard would surely be all of those things.

    It is simply a stupid process.

    As a member of Gen Z, I don't get any news from Snapchat and nobody I knows gets their news from Snapchat... except for my millennial sister in law, but she's a mom of 4 I can't blame her.

    I get my news from Google. I try and find sights that aren't politacly motivated to manipulate the story. But there are some that I believe. I also watch some news on tv but honestly I can't stand those people. Not to mention I don't trust them. I also trust you to be truthful and not focus to much on how you feel about the story. In a world full of fake news stories you have to be extra careful.

    There is a lot of news on Snapchat. Unfortunately, it's all clickbaity, misleading, blatantly partisan non-issues.

    Ya know... I almost bought that bullshit from Kashuv. Then, as per usual, Phil presented the dissenting opinions and my eyes were opened to the shallow, although well-crafted, argument that was Kashuv's attempt at accruing pity. I do feel sorry for the position some of these controversies have put him in, but I hold to my previous stance, that he is allowing himself to be guided down a dark path, and by doing so, damns himself in my eyes. Overall, I pity him little, and resent him far more, along with those who have manipulated him into espousing his misguided rhetoric. Regarding Harvard, I will not be fooled for one second into thinking what they did was ANYTHING but a PR move. But I dig the end result nonetheless.
