Is the media thing not a big deal regardless of people's motives?
1) Did I say it wasn't a big deal?
2) Even though I personally don't agree with it, there is a valid reason on why the students didn't want the media there. It's not a clear cut thing of it being right/wrong.
The resignation was number two on their list of demands, and number one was a ridiculous public shaming of him, so it's a pretty big one.
Most of the others aren't things that can happen overnight (and aren't expected to)
Where does it say that the list is in order of importance? Also those are their solutions to the problem, not the problem itself.
