Free speech back at Tech

At least…that’s the way it sounds to me, but the way the AJC is acting, it sounds like something to dred.

It might not be encouraged, but it is now officially OK to malign someone in a Georgia Tech dorm. And verbal assaults and derogatory signs? They’re allowed, too.

In response to an ongoing lawsuit filed by two conservative student leaders earlier this year, Georgia Tech agreed this week to change portions of a speech policy for students living in on-campus housing that lawyers have alleged is vague and unconstitutional.

I’m digging the title as well, “Insults allowed at Tech.” Nice.

    This is lazy reporting. At least come up with a new line of attack. The LA Times set the tone for this lawsuit and now lazy reporters at the AJC simply rewrite it rather than try to understand what happened.

    What happened is Tech admitted they were wrong.

    For more understanding about what this lawsuit was really about, read my interview with Ruth Malhotra back in May.

    The easiest way to get any story published in the AJC is to write it for them. Lazy doesn’t even begin to describe their crappy reporting. Even the best reporters there are awful. They are so ridiculously needy of praise they will make sure that anything really worthy of reporting is “fair and balanced” even when there is no other side. Sickening.

    The issues that the remaining part of the lawsuit consist of, however, do not have any legs to stand on.
