Free speech and what you write on the internet

Two separate stories are fueling a discussion about what is appropriate to post on the internet.  In one case, an NYU fellow resigned after posting derogatory comments on Twitter about reporter Lara Logan, just as news of her assault in Egypt was breaking. (READ STORY)

In the other case, a Pennsylvania teacher suspended from her job over profanity-laced posts on her blog says she was speaking the truth about students who are unwilling to work hard at school.  She appeared on GMA this morning.

 

Both cases have sparked a discussion about free speech and what's appropriate to write on the internet.  Tell us what you think by clicking on comment below.
