Student Media Censorship and the University’s Educational Compromise
October 6 @ 6:30 pm
When a university tells its student journalists to remove content, this not only compromises the public’s right to know but shortchanges the students’ educational experience. Administrators did just that at Tarleton State University in August, and it merits a Zoom panel on October 6, 2021, at 6:30 pm. CDT. Panel: Frank LoMonte, Director, Brechner Center of Freedom of Information at the University of Florida, Chris Whitley, President of College Media Association, Dan Malone, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and former Tarleton State newsroom adviser and Kathryn Jones, former TSU faculty member and SPJ Region 8 coordinator. Jake Batsell, the William O’Neil Chair in Business Journalism at SMU, will moderate.
