Southwestern College’s student newspaper caught in censorship scandal

As student journalists we are often thought of as inexperienced, unprofessional or unimportant. However, if you look at the current landscape of journalism, most of the biggest names in news began their careers working for the college newspaper or TV station.

We take our craft very seriously and expect to be treated as professionals. At Riverside City College we are lucky enough to have our First Amendment rights respected.

Unfortunately, our peers at Southwestern College are not so lucky. The administration there recently stop publishing the student run newspaper after it published articles critical of the administration in advance of an upcoming election.
