Mon, 23 Jan 2017 18:51:20 UTAmid a national push, Washington state lawmakers are reintroducing a bill that would protect student journalists' free speech in school-sponsored media at public schools and colleges (AP) — Amid a national push, Washington state lawmakers are reintroducing a bill that would protect student journalists' free speech in school-sponsored media at public schools and colleges. Senate Bill 5064, introduced by Republican Sen. Joe Fain, would designate school media as "public forums for expression" and make students responsible for determining content so long as it is not slanderous or libelous, unjustly invades privacy, violates federal or state law or encourages students to break school rules or commit crimes. Under the measure, student media advisers also could not be terminated, transferred or otherwise disciplined for refusing to censor student journalists. The affected students sued the Puyallup School District, but a Pierce County jury ruled the First Amendment protected the student newspaper. The measure being considered by Washington lawmakers specifies that school officials would be protected from civil or criminal liability stemming from content in school-sponsored media. Mike Hiestand, an attorney for the Student Press Law Center, said if schools are concerned about liability issues with this bill, they should get rid of their football teams and cheerleaders, which generally result in the most lawsuits filed against institutions.
