Truth telling is expensive
FORT COLLINS , Colorado – Rocky Mountain Collegian Editor J. David McSwane is under fire for publishing an editorial, "Taser this... F--- Bush."
It was a costly article, with advertisers pulling $30,000 to $50,000 in ads.
But, what the heck, you're only young once.

Kristopher Hite said, "I'm here to tell you that the editor of a student newspaper should not be held to a higher standard than the president of the United States of America." Applause followed by students who turned out to support McSwane.
No Collegian editor has ever been fired in its 116-year history.
