SPRINGFIELD (AP) - The media are barred from asking questions and using TV cameras and audio recorders during former U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft's Springfield speech tonight. Ashcroft's contract with Missouri State University stipulates that the media only take handwritten notes. The public will not be prohibited from bringing in cameras and cell phones, some of which can record photos and video. He has agreed to take questions from the audience. MSU media and journalism professor Andrew Cline said the ban should not be allowed at a university with a public affairs mission. Ashcroft speaks at Drury University tomorrow, but a school spokesman says a ban on media cameras and recorders is apparently not in effect.
