SF State's Golden Gate Xpress Suffered Largest Reported Newspaper Theft of 2019

Friday, December 13, 2019

STUDENT PRESS LAW CENTER -- The Xpress at San Francisco State, which had the largest reported theft for the year, believed that a story covering an ongoing Title IX investigation into a professor was the reason so many papers were swiped. Xpress distribution staffers told the Student Press Law Center they were verbally confronted by students defending the accused professor.

Editors were also contacted by some of the professor’s colleagues after they caught wind the Xpress was going to publish a story on the allegations, saying they were going to “print lies” and that “you don’t know what you’re doing.”

Nobody was ever held responsible for these three thefts.
