Bill McClellan Hosts First Amendment Celebration

Post-Dispatch columnist and United Media Guild member Bill McClellan will be master of ceremonies for a “First Amendment Celebration” scheduled for Nov. 29 at the Edward Jones building at Manchester Rd. and Interstate 270.

The event, staged by the St. Louis Journalism Review/Gateway Journalism Review, will feature noted free speech activist John Seigenthaler. The legendary newspaperman was the founder of the First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University.

More recently, Seigenthaler became a prominent critic of online misinformation. His skirmishes with Wikipedia overly a fraudulent biography prompted that website to revise its posting policies.
