University Newspaper Figures Out How To Get Around Administration's Censorship Orders

Mike Masnick, TechDirt, Apr 20, 2011
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I spent the better part of my misspent youth in student newspaper offices and had to deal with the censorship thing on numerous occasions. So I'll just echo Mike Masnick of TechDirt: "Frankly, the administration at LaSalle should be ashamed of itself. It's not teaching these students journalism at all. It's teaching them about a paranoid administration that wants to hide from the truth. This aspect of the story seems a hell of a lot more damaging to LaSalle University than the original story of the strippers. That could have just been one crazy professor. But the systematic censorship of a student newspaper concerning "damaging" content suggests a university that people shouldn't want to be associated with. If an organization is afraid of the press, there's usually a damn good reason why: because they have things to hide."
