Xpress News Story Exploited for Profit

Tuesday, February 26, 2019

GOLDEN GATE XPRESS -- This staff editorial was published by the Golden Gate Xpress.

“Our independent newspaper has prided itself since 1927 for being a student-run publication, free from the influence of the University and even our own Journalism Department. Recently, this distinction was not only ignored but willfully violated when SF State exploited one of our articles for profit.

“The Office of University Development used an Xpress news article published on September 26, 2018, without the consent of Xpress reporter Paul Eichenholtz, for donations to the College of Liberal & Creative Arts. Eichenholtz was never notified that his story would be reproduced nor was he paid for his work.”
