CSU's Board Of Student Communications To Discuss Editorial

The board that oversees the student newspaper at Colorado State University is meeting tonight to discuss a controversial editorial.

The Rocky Mountain Collegian published a four-word editorial Friday that said in large type, "Taser this. (Expletive) Bush."

Editor-in-chief and CSU junior J. David McSwane says student editors used the obscenity because they believe CSU students are apathetic about their freedom of speech and other rights.

The newspaper's business manager has said the operation lost $30,000 in advertising after the editorial was published, and that the pay of student staffers would be cut ten percent to compensate.

The board could decide to fire McSwane, who has said he won't voluntarily resign.

    One of the great things about this country is our freedom of speech. It allows us all to express our opinions on different issues. Better yet, we do not have to agree. This guy should be rewarded for standing up for our freedoms. You would have to be insane or a self-hating, Constitution-hating American to think this guy should be fired.
