It seems that they cannot take Martin-Morris' leadership on rewriting the policies around student newspapers. (Not surprising from a newspaper.) From The Slog:
He insists that the district currently doesn’t have rules prohibiting students from libel and defamation—but he’s wrong. The district already has rules in place, rules that place less ambiguous restrictions on student speech. We don’t buy his argument that we need new rules that suppress student speech, particularly from someone who doesn’t even know what the existing rules are.
I'm thinking they may have been on the fence all along, went for Martin-Morris and then remembered why they liked Buetow in the first place. They crossed out his name on their cheat sheet and put hers in red letters.
Kudos to The Stranger (and folks, no matter how you feel, give credit to a media outlet for saying they believe they were wrong).
