Frank LoMonte, director of the University of Florida College of Journalism and Communications Brechner Center for Freedom of Information, was quoted in “Admins Inquire About Newspaper, Oversight in Question” published in The Crow’s Nest, the student newspaper for the University of South Florida St. Petersburg.

In the article, LoMonte commented on the problems college newspapers face when housed in a journalism department or in a school’s student life department.

“I think that journalism should not be regarded as an academic activity because then you get academics, well intentioned or not, trying to micromanage the paper,” LoMonte said.
