F*** The Rocky Mountain Collegian
Stupid college newspaper
The Rocky Mountain Collegian published an editorial on page 4 of the paper Friday which read "Taser this ... F*** Bush."
The expletive was spelled out.
The last two words were in bold type, larger than most headlines. A caption below said, "this column represents the views of the Collegian's Editorial Board."
Because, you know, they're standing up for Andrew Meyer's freedom of speech.
The editorial comes fresh on the heels of freedom of speech issues that arose from the Tasering of a Florida student at a Sen. John Kerry speech.
Collegian Editor David McSwane said a group of seven student editors discussed the statement for several hours before agreeing to publish it.
Apparently they missed the fact that the Tasering came at an event featuring a Democrat. As Ace of Spades put it at the time, it was pink on pink.
Of course, McSwane has discovered that free speech is not without consequences:
McSwane told 7NEWS that ads from the CSU Bookstore were pulled from the paper in response to the editorial. Bookstore managers declined to comment.
