Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the skinny on the Daily Universe scandal that happened back when McKay Coppins and Steve Pierce we’re the editors? I see rumblings on Twitter about it but no details

-Nosy

A:

Dear no-see,

It would appear that none of us are familiar with the scandal you're interested in. Sorry! If any readers are more conversant with Twitter rumblings than we, please submit a correction!

Genuinely,

9S

It could have been a couple of articles about a BYUSA election back in 2006 where there was apparently a controversial disqualification followed by a protest and some controversial free tacos. It's more of a BYU scandal than a Daily Universe scandal, but it's tough to say without seeing the rumblings in question.
