(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.”
