Univ. of Washington: Support Student Newspapers

The press and the value of its reporting have been called into question over and over again in the past two years on a nationwide scale as well as a local one. Newspapers have moved entirely to online platforms; some, like Seattle Weekly, cut their staff down to three, and others, like New York’s award-winning Village Voice, have shut down completely.

It only makes sense that this trend would trickle down to university newspapers. The University of Central Florida’s The Central Florida Future has been shut down by the school’s administration, and even more have had their funding cut or faced backlash for honest, not-always-flattering reporting on their university.
