David McSwane wins right to stay in editor’s job

October 8, 2007

The editor of a student paper has been allowed to keep his job after the furore surrounding a headline on an editorial he wrote.
David McSwane the editor of the Colorado State University paper, The Daily Collegian, was censured by the Board of Student Communications, but was not sacked, as had been expected.
McSwane wrote an editorial in response to the tasering of a student at a Florida university. He headlined the piece “Taser this: FUCK Bush“.
Many publications commenting and reporting this story have been coy about using the “expletive”, but fuck it: it’s a perfectly servicable word.
Congratulations David on keeping your job.
