The Campus Freedom Network is proud to announce that documentary producer and filmmaker Andrew Marcus will run a session on new media at the CFN student conference. Andrew is a longtime friend of FIRE. He has produced Political Correctness vs. Freedom of Thought—The Keith John Sampson Story about FIRE's case at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis, where student Keith John Sampson was found guilty of racial harassment for reading an anti-Klan book. Andrew also produced the FIRE videos FIRE on Campus: An Introduction to the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education and FIRE in Action: Valdosta State University with Evan Coyne Maloney, producer of Indoctrinate U.
