CARSON — The editor-in-chief and the faculty adviser for the student newspaper at California State University, Dominguez Hills, have resigned in the wake of a months-long battle with student government leaders for control of the publication.
Candy Nall, the adviser, who also teaches journalism at the university system's campus in Fullerton, said "the last straw" was the administration's refusal to back the Bull's Eye editors in a dispute over the number of editions that should be published this quarter.
"I cannot provide quality instruction to my students when the administration prefers to indulge the petty tyrannies of power-hungry . . . student officers, rather than defend the academic rights and freedom" of journalism students, Nall wrote in a letter of resignation last week.
Editor-in-chief Nancy Harby said infighting with student officers had made it impossible for her to continue running the paper while she struggled with academic and family responsibilities.
