Columbia Spectator Schisms into Spec and Alt-Spec Following Mask Op-Ed Debacle

In the face of the sensationalist anti-mask controversy, the Arts & Culture section of the Columbia Daily Spectator has succeeded and named themselves Alt-Spec, a newer, cooler Spec. Attempting to model their separation after the Western Schism of 1378, Alt-Spec has been garnering allies and leadership to recognize their legitimacy as the one true Spectator of Columbia University.

There have been alerts that the Alt-Spec Columbia news organizations have sent spies into other publications to, as our tech team tells us, hijack their articles, spewing pro-Alt-Spec propaganda of “how cool is that student production with of Hamlet with the hoola hoops is gonna be” into every media nook and cranny.
