CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) -- A student newspaper at a Christian college in Dayton planned to write a story about a Biblical studies professor who resigned after being arrested on attempted child molestation charges, but the story was spiked by the college president.
The Chattanooga Times Free Press reports that Alex Green, the editor of the student newspaper at Bryan College, instead posted fliers around campus about the arrest of David Morgan.
Morgan resigned this summer after he was arrested by officers in a FBI sting and accused of meeting two underage girls at a gas station in Fort Oglethorpe, Ga.
On Tuesday, Bryan College President Stephen Livesay held a meeting with staff and faculty to explain that he didn't allow the story to be printed because it was inappropriate.
