Hazelwood school district v kulmeier 1988
Hazelwood School District v of newspaper censorshipKulmeier (1988)

  • Hazelwood East High School Principal Robert Reynolds procedurally reviewed the Spectrum, the school’s student-written newspaper, before publication. In May 1983, he decided to have certain pages pulled because of the sensitive content in two of the articles, and acted quickly to remove them in order to meet the paper’s publication deadline. The journalism students felt that this censorship was a direct violation of their First Amendment rights. The Supreme Court decided that Principal Reynolds had the right to such editorial decisions, as he had “legitimate pedagogical concerns.”



  • We associate Oprah with many things, one of which is her battle of the bulge. The moment that seemingly started it all was during her 1988 season premiere when she wheeled out “Oprah’s Wagon of Fat,” a Radio Flyer filled with 67 pounds of lard to represent the weight she had lost in three months on a liquid-protein diet. Following the episode, she began eating solid foods to celebrate; within two days the size 10 skinny jeans she worked so hard to slip on no longer fit. From that point, viewers have watched her weight rollercoaster. But whether Oprah regrets that moment or not (she's said that she does), it helped her become one of the most approachable, relatable celebrities there is and has won her legions of fans.
