Freedom of Speech Redefined by Blogs

From the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Jessica Prokop thought the textbook for her class at Seton Hill University was biased and that its author "seems like a bitter man." In the annals of student rants, nothing extraordinary there. Except she didn't just blurt out those words in her journalism class. She blogged them. Soon, the author himself was responding all the way from England, pledging to re-examine an upcoming edition given her critique.


  1. I wonder how the author found out about the blog. How amazing and empowering for that student!

  2. The power of that one student...simply amazing and proving even more what a flat world we live in!
