Utah SPJ opposes broadcast ban at USU

The Utah Headliners Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists objects to Utah State University banning broadcasters from U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s recent speech there.

Only broadcasters were excluded. Why? Well, we’re not exactly sure. SPJ member and USU journalism professor Penny Byrne writes about it here.

A public university, a public forum where “all are welcome to attend?”

UPDATE: The Ogden Standard-Examiner has an editorial on the issue.
