This just in from the Spinaker, the University of North Florida student newspaper: oral sex can cause cancer.

This just in from the University of North Florida student government: the spread on the front cover of the student newspaper crossed the line.

This just in from the Jacksonville TV story covering the controversy
: Let’s see how many times we can show the controversial cover during a 1 minute 20 second piece so we can get higher ratings.

So is the news subject inappropriate for a college newspaper?

Is the cover to provocative for a college newspaper?

Did the TV station cross the line of sensationalism by showing the cover of the newspaper too much?
