Free Screech

Stefan Beck of The New Criterion writes about The New York Press’s editor Jeff Koyen, who quit after being given grief because he green-lighted a piece gleefully awaiting the Pope’s death.

“Free expression”, Beck writes, “is our right, but we respect it and nourish it best not simply by using it, but by using it to good ends”. It’s something that’s frequently missing in journalism these days.
