University of Memphis President Investigating Helmsman Cuts →

The Daily Helmsman, in an update regarding its budget being cut:

University of Memphis President Shirley Raines has said in an email that she has asked her executive assistant to review the circumstances surrounding the funding cut of the Daily Helmsman.

“Even though it is my understanding that the committee’s initial decision to cut the Helmsman’s funding was not based on the content of the newspaper, I want to be sure that this is the case,” Raines wrote Wednesday in an email reply to a U of M alumni who was upset about the funding cut.
