Student Newspaper Applauds ASA and Slams Witt Censorship Policy

This week the University of Alabama student newspaper, The Crimson White, came out solidly in favor of freedom of speech and the press.

The CW condemned the Witt policy of denial and deceit that led to the virtual banning of two faculty publications, The Alabama Observer and Alabama Academe.

All the newspapers that have so far offered an opinion (Birmingham News, Mobile Register, Crimson White) agree that Witt’s excuse — “I’m only following postal regulations” — is an insulting feint and has fooled no one.
