San Antonio college administrator wants to get paid for interviews by student newspaper

From the Express-News:

The student life director at San Antonio College told the student newspaper, The Ranger, last week that he wanted a fee to be interviewed by its reporters.

Jorge Posadas told The Ranger’s student editor Jolene Almendarez that he would answer questions via email but would not do a face-to-face interview without being paid.

“If you would like I can serve as professional source on the subject of student affairs and we can set up a professional consulting contract and we can negotiate an appropriate fee,” Posadas wrote via email.

In a phone interview Monday, Posadas called his response “inappropriate” and said he had misinterpreted the paper’s request for information about budget issues as a request for professional consulting.
