(You gotta) fight for your right to publish
By Samantha Anne Carrillo [ Mon Apr 8 2013 1:54 PM ]
When the Chronicle-gate dust settled, I sought out opinions on the importance of the censorhip incident from New Mexico Foundation for Open Government Executive Director Gwyneth Doland, Daily Lobo Editor-in-Chief Elizabeth Cleary and CNM Chronicle Editor-in-Chief Jyllian Roach. I wrapped those insights up with an editorial bow, and then I slipped a mixtape into CNM’s locker in Stop the Presses. Below, stream our freedom of speech-centric mixtape featuring tracks by Salt-n-Pepa, 2 Live Crew, Beastie Boys, Chamillionaire feat. Slick Rick, Anthrax, Alice Donut, Leonard Cohen, Frank Zappa, the Ramones, NOFX, Steve Earle, Todd Snider and the Dixie Chicks.
In follow-up communication with Cleary, she noted her plan was never to completely halt publication or bankrupt the Daily Lobo. “We were however not going to have our 'regularly scheduled programming' in print,” said Cleary. “We were going to keep up the momentum by either reprinting parts of Chronicle's sex issue in our paper, running a huge editorial from the Chronicle editor on our front page, etc. Basically, it was giant X's the first day, and then in subsequent days, we would have kept looking for the next shocking thing to demonstrate we weren't letting it go, sort of taking it day to day.”

Video from the Chicago NATO protests
By Marisa Demarco [ Tue Jun 19 2012 4:38 PM ]
In this week’s opinion slot, Andrew Beale recounts his trip to the City of Wind to film and participate in the protests against NATO. He argues that biased mainstream media accounts are part of why more people get their news from Internet sources and from shaky cell phone videos posted to YouTube. Online, Beale’s piece “Don’t Believe the Hype” includes video footage he shot at the demonstration.

Don’t Believe the Hype
By Andrew Beale
The image of veterans flinging their medals in the direction of McCormick Place, where the summit was held, provided an incredibly strong statement that our columnist will never forget. As powerful as that was, the act was far overshadowed by the violence immediately afterward, he writes.
