The college suspended Caleb O’Neil for the current semester and the summer term, saying he violated a Coast Community College District policy prohibiting recording someone on district property without that person’s consent.
“It is my hope that this experience will lead you to truly think through your actions and the consequences of those actions when making decisions in the future,” Victoria Lugo, interim dean of students, wrote in a Feb. 9 letter to O’Neil, whose video clips of instructor Olga Perez Stable Cox in December went viral.

Venezuela shuts off CNN in Spanish after criticizing story


CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) — Venezuela’s government pulled CNN in Spanish from the nation’s airwaves on Wednesday, shutting off the news channel after officials angrily criticized a report alleging the country’s diplomats sold passports to members of a Middle East terror group.

The National Telecommunications Commission announced it initiated sanctions because of news stories that it considered “direct aggressions” that “threaten the peace and democratic stability” of Venezuela, the agency said in a news release.

The move comes as the new U.S. administration seems to be trying to further isolate Venezuela’s embattled socialist President Nicolas Maduro. On Tuesday, President Donald Trump called on Maduro to release jailed opposition leader Leopoldo Lopez, saying he should be let “out of prison immediately.”

Russia Accuses U.S. of ‘Paranoia’ Over Ties After Flynn’s Ouster

Flynn Resignation Adds to Trump’s Security Challenges
Russian lawmakers reacted with dismay and anger to U.S. National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s resignation, calling it a sign that Donald Trump’s White House is driven by the same “paranoia” toward the Kremlin as previous presidencies.

Flynn’s ouster over contacts with Russian Ambassador to the U.S. Sergey Kislyak shows that the Trump administration either isn’t independent or suffers from “Russophobia,” Konstantin Kosachyov, a member of the ruling party and chairman of the foreign affairs committee of the upper house of the Russian parliament, wrote Tuesday on Facebook. U.S. hawks treat a readiness for dialogue with Russia as an Orwellian “thought crime,” he said.
