After news broke Wednesday that three separate printing companies refused to publish CP-sponsored Fusion magazine's spring issue, citing profanity and pornography, student editors at the magazine have released the full issue online. Here are the images that Freeport Press Inc., Hess Print Solutions, and Davis Graphic Communication Solutions cited in declining to publish the issue.
Meanwhile, Printing Concepts in Stow, Ohio, which agreed to publish Fusion, released a statement Thursday, stating: "Printing Concepts advocates freedom of speech and the extension of that right to all persons or organizations. They accepted the Fusion project based on this Constitutional right. As a business philosophy, Printing Concepts maintains that they do not judge the artistic, literary, or political content of their clients’ work, unless that content advocates violence or harm to others."
