What did they say?!

This school year brings new issues for campuses. Student reporters may criticize your college or university, make disparaging remarks about staff members or other students, or reflect on the world around them in an objectionable way.

You need to understand the First Amendment rights afforded to these journalists, broadcasters, and bloggers to balance them with the need to protect your institution, students, staff, and other stakeholders.
