James Aronson Awards Coordinator Peter Parisi Supports News Censorship of the WORD: Boycott the Aronson Awards

Friday, April 13th, 2012

I’m telling my students to boycott the event. I’m telling everyone in the journalism circles I frequent to boycott the event even if they never heard of  the Aronsons. I’m telling them to tell their friends and associates.

Regarding Colleague Parisi’s comments at the March 14 faculty meeting supporting censorship of the WORD: How incredibly hypocritical. How incredibly obtuse — as he and Colleagues dumb enough to support him are about to learn.

I was not exaggerating when I recently told Colleagues in the Department of Film and Media Studies, Hunter College, about the contempt in journalism circles for this event and that I had to put someone in place at the Polk Awards last year for intimating that I somehow was involved with this Parisi coordinated farce.
