Free Speech Victory at Tufts, Yet Still, No One's Happy


Two articles in the student-run magazine The Primary Source at Tufts University irked a student and faculty committee enough for it to call for the censorship of campus publications and force the magazine to use bylines on all its pieces last year. Tufts officials, however, reversed that decision this week—a move free-speech activists call a victory, the Boston Globe reports. Tufts did not reverse all the committee's findings, however, and maintained that the stories in question—which sparked cries of racism—did indeed constitute harassment against blacks and Muslims. —Alison Go
