Video of Student Banned from Campus for Facebook Post on WCNC, Charlotte

October 13, 2011

Late last night, NewsChannel 36 in Charlotte, N.C. (WCNC) filmed Catawba Valley Community College student Marc Bechtol, who was banned from campus for taking to Facebook to protest CVCC’s deal with a debit card company. The video spot illuminates the satirical intent of Bechtol’s Facebook comment, and the absurdity of CVCC’s actions.

If you haven’t yet, you can write to CVCC President Garrett D. Hinshaw today and ask CVCC to uphold its obligation to protect free speech today.
