Students at Clerkenwell university vote to ban The Sun

28 November, 2016

STUDENTS at City University, renowned for its journalism course, have voted to ban The Sun, Daily Mail and Daily Express titles from its campus.

The Clerkenwell university’s student union voted to ban the publications last week. Supporters of the motion said it was introduced to pressure media outlets to cease from publishing stories that “fuel fascism, racial tension and hatred in society”.

Journalism students at the university fear the ban will affect their chances of going on to secure work, particularly at the titles affected.
