T&C responds to firing of Ashland University newspaper advisor

Ashland University's student-led newspaper "The Collegian" recently dealt with the firing of their advisor, Ted Daniels which provoked a response from the Foundation for Individual Rights and Expression (FIRE). 

The reason for Daniels's firing was said to be because of what he was teaching. What he was teaching, you ask? Investigative journalism. Student journalists attended a "faculty-staff town hall" which is barred to students from attending. The students never published the story about the town hall, and yet Daniels lost his job. Another reason was said to be due to student's persistence in talking to potential sources.

We at T&C Media stand with "The Collegian" and Daniels. The firing of a professor for teaching a part of curriculum that journalists need to know is more than concerning.

On Sept. 26, Ashland hired journalist Dillion Carr as the new faculty advisor for "The Collegian."
