If you don't like them...ban them!

Happening in China? (Yes, but not in this case.) North Korea? (Same song, next verse.)

No, in this case the banning is being done by a U.S. college president, who doesn't like the fact that the student journalists at his institution are acting like...journalists.

Get used to it, pal. It's called freedom of the press.

And, yes, at times faculty appear to be willing to practice this onerous policy, as well. Check out what has happened to one student journalist at NYU.

Uh, it's called freedom of speech. Try it. You might like it.
