The OC Weekly's Steve Lowery writes that the paper's reporter Gustavo Arellano was barred by Chapman University from covering a press conference with Spain's ex-Prime Minister, Jose Maria Aznar. Lowery says the scribe was told it was regular procedure at the school, a claim he pooh-poohs:
They were lying, of course. Gustavo was the only reporter prevented from attending the press conference because he wrote an essay in March critical of Aznar and then-American Ambassador George Argyros in regards to the terrorist train bombing. Chapman’s tinhorns probably didn’t care much what Gusto wrote about Aznar, who’s so popular at home that Spaniards in March made him their former prime minister. No, it was what he wrote about Argyros, Chapman’s greatest benefactor/john who has given millions to have numerous buildings, halls, drinking fountains and garden sheds named after him—and at least one journalist prevented from doing his job.
