Student Journalists Censored for Breaking News Story

Originally aired: Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Thanks for listening to the Dave and Dujanovic Show a.k.a. D2 Herriman High School students Conor Spahr and Max Gordon were mad when the school took down their article breaking a story about a teacher's alleged inappropriate communications with a student. They call it censorship. Dave and Debbie are wondering, how was this allowed to be published in the first place? Why are student journalists given more autonomy over what gets published than professional journalists? There are systems of approval in place at KSL for not just the protection of the public but writers as well, and Deb and Dave are thankful for the legal assistance they get from the KSL attorneys. They understand the need to break a story all too well, and congratulate the students' effort, but advise them to be a little more careful in the future.   Dave Noriega oversees sports television.
