EDITOR OF RIC ANCHOR STANDS UP F0R THE RIGHT TO A FREE PRESS

Hello Bradley,
I am responding to your complaint about the advertisement "Inconvenient History: The Power of Taboo," that ran in the last issue of The Anchor that came out on March 10. We have not had an issue come out since then because of Spring Break and our conference so no issues have passed since the advertisement last ran. Our ads manager made a mistake deciding to "pull the ad". He took this action without my knowledge and without my approval. The advertisement will run in The Anchor as long as you are willing to pay for it. We are a forum for free expression and the exchange of ideas, meaning that we will not censor any of our content. Our ads manager made a mistake and has been re-assigned. The Anchor would be willing to run the ad again as long as your organization is willing to pay for it.
I hope this clears everything up and I thank you for bringing this situation to my attention. I was not aware that this action had been taken by my ads manager.
If you have any questions, let me know.

I would congratulate the editor of the newspaper for courage and integrity. No one should fear free and peaceful speech
