NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Several Christopher Newport University employees are facing disciplinary action after they removed copies of the university's student-run newspaper during a visit from prospective students.
According to a statement from Paul Trible, the university's president, the young employees were "concerned that a newspaper article would create a bad impression..."
Trible added, " The Captain's Log is free to write anything it pleases and CNU fully respects the freedom of the press. The University expressly condemns this conduct and these actions do not reflect the custom, policy or practice of the University."
When a senior official found out the papers had been removed, orders were given to return them.
