Sharon Bishop, the chairman of the Board of Visitors and Governors, acknowledges the censorship, but says that it occurs very rarely. She says, "St. John's is a private college and the College funds the student newspaper. The College has the right to control the content of the paper, but exercises this right very rarely and only for compelling reasons (e.g., privacy laws, ongoing investigations, pending criminal proceedings). Given that many of the published articles are critical of the administration, the College is not doing a very good job of 'shield[ing] itself from public criticism,' if that were its intent."
