Rock Chalk Social Media Crackdown In The Aftermath Of Prof. Guth Death Wish Tweet
Check this crackdown on collegiate Internets speech in the aftermath of an unfortunate death wish by a Kansas Journalism professor:
Regents pass social media policy in wake of Guth tweet
"The new policy was made in response to the anti-NRA tweet by Kansas University professor David Guth, which caused a national uproar.
Under the social media policy approved unanimously by the regents, the chief executive officer of a state university has the authority to suspend, dismiss or terminate any faculty or staff member who makes improper use of social media."
And the lesson here isn't rally about free speech but more of a warning to precious J-School grads that their instructors don't really know much more about the digital media world than anybody else.
