Cronkite School criticized on Twitter for student social media policy - The State Press: In a tweet that has since gone viral, an ASU alumna took to Twitter to share an experience she had while a student at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
Aída Chávez, now a journalist for The Intercept, posted a tweet on July 26 that included screenshots of an email from 2016 in which she was reprimanded by the Cronkite School for a tweet that has since been deleted about her father being an immigrant.
The original tweet, which read, “fact: I wouldn’t be here if my father didn’t cross the border. He’s an engineer. I’m trying to get two degrees and graduate early," was posted while Chávez was working as a reporter for Cronkite News, a professional program hosted by the school, in Washington D.C.
