Educational Exercise: Err on the Side of Freedom?

Holocaust-denier Bradley Smith purchased a one-month text ad on the website of the Badger Herald, the University of Wisconsin's student newspaper for $75 and though the paper's publisher and staff disagrees with Mr. Smith's message, they felt that they couldn't deny the advertiser's freedom of speech.

After the jump, a video report from Channel3000 about the initial controversy and a Holocaust awareness rally held in response, plus subsequent reports about a journalism ethics forum held on campus also from Channel3000, along with a text story from the school newspaper which contains embeds of the two hour discussion.
