City University Bans Fake Newspapers


City University in London has a well-respected journalism department and has decided that the time has come. They have had enough of all the Fake News going about so have decided to ban the Daily Mail, The Sun and The Express from the campus.

Not all the students were happy with this decision and some claimed it was “censorship”. The Student Union met on 15 November however and the motion was passed.

One of the twists is that many of those currently working at the three papers mentioned actually studied at City University.

Seems the turning point was the attack on the High Court Judges but the treatment of the Hillsborough disaster had been at the back of their mind for a long time.

They were also concerned about the number of attacks in the media on the poor, the sick and the disabled.

It will be interesting to see how long this ban lasts. LINK
