Professor Roy Gutterman L’00 Discusses the Controversial Roald Dahl Book Revisions

Professor Roy Gutterman L’00, Director of the Newhouse Schools’ Tully Center for Free Speech, appeared on CBS News to discuss free speech and censorship issues surrounding the recent revisions to Roald Dahl’s children’s books.

“You would think that publishers, who are generally at the forefront of free expression and free expression rights, would be more cognizant of the message this is sending to other authors and readers…that message is we’re going to edit, we’re going to censor, we’re going to change language that sometimes falls out of favor or might offend people through a 21st-century model.”
