Viacom subsidiary College Publisher has dropped language in its contract with the University of Hawaii-Manoa's student newspaper that forbade any stories critical of the firm or its corporate partners, the Honolulu Weekly reports. The dispute was made public last week when the alt-weekly reported the student paper's website had been down since February due to the stalled contract talks. The provision was removed the next day, according to the Weekly. College Publisher provides an online publishing system for the websites of more than 450 university and college newspapers.
