Chancellor’s Welcome Message

I am very pleased to introduce the CUNY/New York Times in Education 2015 calendar, Spreading the News, a history of journalism in the United States. Published in a time of rapid changes in the industry, it is a timely and welcome contribution to the history of our nation’s fourth estate.
The Founding Fathers saw the danger of government censorship during the War for Independence and believed it important to enshrine freedom of the press into the First Amendment. The calendar explores the origins of press freedom and how it is periodically under attack, especially during times of crisis and war.  >>
