There are so many legitimate and excellent reasons to criticise the Link and there are extremely intelligent ways to do so via satire and irony. However, The Lynx “Spoof” in the Concordian (March 29, 2011) was not only a pathetic attempt at satire and irony, but a sad and clear reflection of the creative abilities of the Concordian’s editorial staff.

While it may be unfair to compare the creative talent and teams of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report to that of the Concordian, I do hope that the staff who put together The Lynx will be intelligent enough to not include this feature in their portfolios when applying for work at major newspapers or television programs.

Although, if the Concordian staff is so proud of its creation, I challenge the paper to submit The Lynx and back issues of the Link to the head writers of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report for review and judgment.
