Faculty advisers reject student's submission

CALIFORNIA -- When Fresno City College student Ryan Bowler had his submission to the campus magazine The Ram's Tale rejected by faculty advisers out of fear it would offend the school's administration, he decided to use another publication to get the word out about what he calls an attempt to "regulate the student press and subsequently control the student body."

In a commentary published by The Fresno Bee in May, Bowler accused school officials of threatening to withhold monetary support from The Ram's Tale if student editors printed material that offended administrators.
