UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA CENSORSHIP: MOBILE REGISTER ARTICLE



Sean Reilly from the Washington Bureau of the Mobile Register has penned a lengthy article about the University of Alabama's ban of the Alabama Observer. The Observer is the newspaper of an organization I head, the Alabama Scholars Association. The article begins:

"A conservative faculty organization at the University of Alabama is accusing administrators of censorship after the group was barred from using the campus mail system to distribute its newspaper without regular postage.

Leaders of the organization, known as the Alabama Scholars Association, charge that the decision is payback for their efforts to shake up the status quo, including a proposal for term limits for university administrators and a report that found widespread grade inflation in some departments.

"It's just an effort to quash any sort of dissent," the association's president, history professor David Beito, said last week.
