PODCAST: Threats to Student Media

POSTED BY HANK REICHMAN

On December 1, the AAUP, the College Media Association (CMA), the National Coalition Against Censorship (NCAC), and the Student Press Law Center (SPLC) released a report, Threats to the Independence of Student Media, shining a light on threats to student media and faculty and staff advisers.  The report reaffirms and expands upon basic principles of a free student press and academic freedom as articulated in the 1967 Joint Statement on the Rights and Freedoms of Students. Recently I joined SPLC’s Frank LoMonte to discuss the report in a half-hour podcast, which can be heard at SPLC’s website here or via iTunes here.
