I wrote two articles for mine this week and was told BY THE EDITOR they were both "really good" and would "definitely go in". When I picked up this week's edition, I saw they hadn't used one of them (even though it was fine and had a pun in the headline). They had used the other one but with SOMEONE ELSE'S NAME ON IT. They changed the words a bit but IT WAS MY STORY.
This is the week after I "saved them" when their planned front page turned out to be a non-story.
I've got a good story for this week but I don't know whether to bother researching and writing it since they might fuck it up again.
