Abstract

The Seventh Circuit’s 2005 Hosty v. Carter decision cast a chill of panic on free speech advocates and collegiate student journalists across the nation. This note contends that the decision’s scope and implications are more limited than what other commentators have suggested. It also argues that college administrators legally can and pedagogically should encourage their institutions’ student newspapers to uphold established ethical and professional journalistic practices, and gives specific suggestions for doing so.
