Bradley U Sorry for Barring Sports Reporter

March 18, 2019

Bradley University on Friday banned a longtime sports reporter from attending basketball events because he wrote some articles that did not promote the university's brand. But amid widespread criticism, the university reversed itself and apologized Saturday. President Gary Roberts issued a statement indicating that he had been unaware of the ban and that it was inconsistent with the university's policies. "I personally and Bradley University institutionally do not believe that it is the job or duty of anyone in the media or any media outlet to promote Bradley’s brand. It is the media’s job to report the news and facts in a truthful and unbiased way and occasionally to express opinions that are reasoned and based on accurate facts as best they know them," said Roberts.
