A college I formerly attended (in Tennessee) has an article which includes my name. It is beginning to be a security concern.
I contacted the paper and a student told me it is their policy, you know like a real news outlet, to not make any changes. I even suggested to simply change my name. They refuse. What action can I take?
A student newspaper would be considered a "real news outlet" by the courts and has of their 1st amendment protections.
You did not say what the newspaper is saying about you. If it is a truthful statement their is nothing you can do.
