Defending the Collegiate Press

Various authors, Harvard Crimson, Dec 08, 2006
Commentary by Stephen Downes

As a former student newspaper editor, one twice elected by the newspaper staff, I am certain to echo the opinion expressed by the editors of 20 student newspapers across the United States protesting the refusal of the administration at the University of Southern California to accept the election of Zach Fox to the post of editor in chief of the Daily Trojan. "A meddling administration undermines the educational value of student journalism. Interventions like this assault the core values of student newspapersâx"objectivity and comprehensive coverage. They compromise journalistic integrity and tarnish the development of the next generation of journalists." Hear hear. Via Student Press Law Centre, via Academic Impressions newsletter.
