TN Higher Ed, awash in taxpayer money,

tries "Washington Monument" ploy.

When the National Park service is threatened with budget cuts, they nearly always respond by threatening to close the most visible and important attraction, the Washington Monument. Thus the name "Washington Monument" ploy.

Now TN higher Ed is taking a page from that book by threatening to stop printing the student newspaper at MTSU.

This shamelessly greedy ploy by a TN higher ed bureaucracy that acts more like a bank robber than an educational institution is absolutely unforgivable.
