Blogger removed from NCAA baseball game for blogging

According to the Courier-Journal, staff blogger Brian Bennett was approached by NCAA officials in the fifth inning of a game between the University of Lousville and Oklahoma State, told that blogging “from an NCAA championship event ‘is against NCAA policies (and) we’re revoking the (press) credential and need to ask you to leave the stadium.'”



In its article, the Courier-Journal quoted its executive editor, Bennie Ivory, as saying, “It’s clearly a First Amendment issue. This is part of the evolution of how we present the news to our readers. It’s what we did during the Orange Bowl. It’s what we did during the NCAA basketball tournament. It’s what we do.” —Blogger removed from NCAA baseball game for blogging (C|Net)
