Joey quoted in Newsweek, discussing student journalism

Joey Safchik, news director for the Northwestern News Network (NNN), the university’s Emmy Award–winning student-run television network, told Newsweek they were also urged to retract their reporting. By unanimous decision of its executive board, they decided to not take down their coverage because they were confident their reporting was accurate and fair.

“We have a responsibility to our campus. It’s a nuanced situation and context is extremely important, but I don’t think anyone should have to apologize for doing accurate journalism,” Safchik said.
