Censorship of the media is in vogue:

According to the results of the survey, HBCU students were more likely than their peers to distrust the media, with only 39 percent of HBCU students reporting a “great deal” or “fair amount” of trust in the media, compared to 42 percent of all college students.

As an extension of this distrust, HBCU students were twice as likely (56 percent to 28 percent) to say they favored limiting the ability of the press to cover campus protests, citing justifications such as a desire to be left alone, a desire to control one’s own story through social media, and concerns about unfair reporting.
