I said pretty much all I had to say about this sorry spectacle last night, but if you want to read the agreement in which Valley News Live agrees to curtain their press freedoms in exchange for not being prosecuted, the full document is below.
I finally received it this afternoon from the attorney representing Fargo Public Schools.
Just so we’re clear about what this is, it represents a media outlet agreeing to be silent on an issue in exchange for not being prosecuted. And remember, rather than defending the institution of journalism, the other media outlets in the Fargo area decided instead to attack VNL.
Again, a sorry spectacle.
