Student Press Law Center Takes On Seattle Times

posted by on February 2 at 16:30 PM

Yesterday, I gave some bad Slog to the Seattle Times for its editorial stance on the student freedom of press bill in Olympia.

I also cracked on new GOP chair Luke Esser—who, now that all the GOP members of the judiciary committee voted against the bill—is in an awkward position for two reasons:

First, being a Rob McKenna acolyte (AG McKenna strongly supports the bill), Esser probably can’t stand that his bird brain caucus flouted the Republican AGs Office.

Second, and much more important, the outcast GOP needs to win back the mainstream. Esser’s going to have to do a good dance to make his crumudgeonly legislators look mainstream after they walked all over something as basic as the student press.

Anyway, I’m bringing all this up again because Postman follows up today with some good links from the Student Press Law Center.
