ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Central New Mexico Community College has decided to temporarily pull the plug on its student newspaper.
The move was in response to the 12-page issue that hit stands and the Internet on Tuesday. Administrators say the content, which focused on sexual orientation and other topics related to sex, was offensive and not appropriate for the mission of the school.
College spokesman Brad Moore says the latest issue of the CNM Chronicle prompted complaints and administrators felt it was time to reevaluate the structure and oversight of the newspaper.
Moore says the college doesn't have a journalism program so it will be considering various options for training students how to run a newspaper.
The weekly publication is distributed to nearly 30,000 students, faculty, staff and other employees. Its annual budget of about $74,000 comes from the publicly funded college.
