Sal Paolantonio Talk Tonight

Tonight at 7:30 pm, Sal Paolantonio, ESPN NFL Correspondent and St. Joe’s Writing Studies Program adjunct faculty member, will be talking about how the Bush administration continues to construct obstacles that make it hard for journalists to do their jobs. How explicit policies and the nature of our wartime status contribute to those obstacles and then shroud the inner workings of the government from view by claiming national security issues. Paolantonio claims that the government is trying to shut down the exchange of ideas and information.

“If you were doing a blueprint for a corrupt country, for a dictatorship, the first thing you would do is criminalize the exchange of information and try to put limits on the freedom of the press.”

If you’re interested in seeing this former Inquirer political reporter turned ESPN correspondent, tonight is your chance.
