(Newser) – A Philadelphia college newspaper has gone topless to publish a story alleging a professor used exotic dancers in a business seminar. La Salle University students say administrators would not let them print the story above the fold on the front page, so the top half of Thursday's Collegian is blank, except for the words "See below the fold."

The newspaper's executive editor, Vinny Vella, says administrators initially forbade him from printing the article at all until their investigation was complete. They relented after the Philadelphia City Paper broke the story April 8, but issued the story-location caveat. The university's dean declined to comment.
