Some Useful Questions On Critical Issues Of Breaking News

BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) Did a Burlington school break the law by censoring a student newspaper? The student newspaper at Burlington High School, the BHS Register, broke a story Monday about school guidance director Mario Macias being charged with unprofessional conduct by the Agency of Education. But Tuesday, school administrators censored the article, according to paper staff. “The BHS Register is like very, very accessible to the students. So I think it, like, shouldn’t be taken down. It makes sense that they would report it and the students would hear about it first,” said McKenna Weston, a BHS student. State law protects student journalists from school administration censorship, with some exceptions including libel or slander, an unwarranted invasion of privacy, a content that is obscene, profane, threatening or intimidating, harassment, hazing or bullying, violates federal or state law or creates the imminent danger of disrupting the ability of the school to perform its educational mission. “Every time the school, like, messes up. They try to cover it up and they don’t take responsibility for what they did,” said Mils Trombley, a BHS student. In a statement Thursday, the district says Principal Noel Green asked paper staff to remove the story finding that it meets an exception to the law by “substantially disrupting the ability of the school to perform its educational mission.” But the Vermont Press Association and the New England First Amendment Coalition says that reasoning doesn’t apply to the law.

The city of Portland purchased a modular building containing restrooms, showers and laundry equipment in 2016 when Charlie Hales was mayor. Due to an editing error, a Sept. 14 article about the auction of that building misstated the year the need for it arose. On Aug. 30, The Oregonian published a Washington Post report that has since been corrected or amended several times. After the Aug. 29 story about U.S. citizens being denied passports,  the State Department challenged the accuracy of the article and issued data on Aug. 31 suggesting passport denials were at the lowest level in years: In 2017, it said, 971 people on the southern border with potentially fraudulent birth certificates, or 28 percent of those in the category, were denied passports, a smaller percentage than in any of the four previous years. Also, the State Department began denying passports during the George W. Bush administration, not the Obama administration.

September 20, 2018 / 10:46 PM / Updated 5 hours ago Nigeria police say $470.5 million retrieved in asset recovery exercise YENAGOA, Nigeria (Reuters) – Police in Nigeria recovered $470.5 million in bank accounts related to the state oil company as part of an exercise to recover stolen funds, and the money will be sent to government coffers, the country’s police force said on Thursday. President Muhammadu Buhari, who won the 2015 election on an anti-corruption ticket, ordered government revenues to be placed in a Treasury Single Account (TSA) at the central bank as part of an anti-corruption drive. Money recovered from alleged graft would also be put in the account. The police on Thursday said they had launched a nationwide exercise to recover stolen funds, to be placed in the TSA, during which it discovered money related to the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation’s (NNPC) Liquefied Natural Gas business unit. Police recovered “$470,519,889.10 belonging to NNPC Brass/LNG Investment hidden in some commercial banks after the directives of the federal government on TSA,” police spokesman Jimoh Moshood said in an emailed statement. Moshood, who said the recovery followed an investigation by specialist police units, did not state when the money was recovered. A spokesman for NNPC did not immediately respond to phone calls and text messages requesting comment. Buhari plans to seek a second term in a presidential elections scheduled to take place in February 2019. Nigeria, Africa’s top crude oil producer and which has one of the continent’s largest economies, in early 2017 emerged from its first recession in 25 years, which was largely caused by low oil prices.
