I Don't Think This Would Ever Happen at Notre Dame

A University of California-San Diego student, Steven York, aired a porn movie he made and starred in on the school's closed-circuit television network several times. The airing has generated a lot of controversy. Critics say the student-TV station should not be broadcasting obscene material. York says that it's free speech. Whatever the school administrators' opinions are on the matter, the worse punishment York could face would be the shutting down of the student-run TV station (Student President Jenn Pae says that this unlikely). If UCSD does not shut down the TV station, York has promised to air additional homemade porno movies he's made. It's good to see California's tax dollars being used towards such a worthy cause.
