Students receive editorial control of UGA newspaper once again
- Students once again received editorial control Friday of the University of Georgia's student-run newspaper, "The Red and Black," just two days after the paper's entire staff resigned en masse.
- The mass resignation was a response to editorial control being moved to non-student staffers, with story content requiring their approval prior to publication, and the former staffers had already created a blog and Twitter feed titled "The Red and Dead" with the intent of publishing original, constraint-free material.
- According to former "Red and Black" editor-in-chief Rachel Bowers, editors were told that they would need to reapply for their positions with the student paper.
