Gutterman talks to CNN about UNC professor's 'vile and inexcusable' tweets

June 10, 2020

Roy Gutterman, associate professor in the magazine, news and digital journalism department and director of the Tully Center for Free Speech, was interviewed for the CNN article, "University of North Carolina Wilmington calls professor's tweets 'vile and inexcusable' following growing backlash online."

"The answer to this is not punishment, which would run afoul of the First Amendment because this involves a public university. The answer is to counter the speech and confront the speech," said Gutterman.
