The article reports on the new policy on public access passed by the Indiana Student Foundation. It states that the "Indiana Daily Student," the school publication of the Indiana University, denied U.S. Secretary Adviser Meghan O'Sullivan's request to make her speech, which was to be addressed in a lecture open to the public, off the record. With the paper's decision, O'Sullivan said she was ill and canceled her speech, which costs around $5,000. The new policy states that the student journalist and the press are part of the public and their entry to any public event must not be denied.
