Liberty U Blocks Access To Local Paper
Two weeks ago, The Lynchburg News & Advance broke the news that Liberty University took in nearly a half-billion dollars last year in money from the government in the form of federal financial aid and noted that this could be seen as running counter to the university’s smaller government/conservative values agenda.
Then, suddenly last week, everyone on LU's campus was mysteriously unable to access The News & Advance and Jerry Falwell Jr. is refusing to provide any explanation as to why that was:
The Liberty University administration blocked access to The News & Advance website from its campus for at least one day last week.
LU Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr. did not elaborate on the reason Monday, adding that Liberty’s policies allow the administration to “block a number of sites at will.”
By Monday, The News & Advance website had been unblocked.
“Most of the websites that are blocked have to do with obscene material, material that is inappropriate,” Falwell said. “It just so happened last week The News & Advance was blocked for a day or two. We’re a private organization and we don’t have to give a reason and we’re not.”
