Reinstated OCC Newspaper Adviser Goes Back to Work

By September 1, 2006

A few weeks ago, FIRE linked to a Student Press Law Center report that a federal judge had issued an injunction reinstating Karen Bosley, the student newspaper adviser at Ocean County College. Bosley and her students claimed she was removed from her position for refusing to censor content in the paper that was critical of Ocean County College’s administration.

The Asbury Park Press reports that Bosley and her students at the OCC Viking News have begun work on the first edition for the new school year. They plan to include an article on Bosley’s debacle with the administration. It is a happy ending to a sad story of press censorship all too common on today’s college campuses.
