    I figger that what you might be saying is that an Editorial Board on a school paper might be violating a writer's speech rights if the board decrees certain words or phrases aren't to be used
    Just because the first amendment is implicated doesn't mean it's been violated.  Look at Occupy Wall Street and its progeny: they had first amendment rights to engage in expressive conduct, to protest, etc., but that can be overcome if the regulation is viewpoint/content neutral and reasonable.

    Same thing here.  

    Or: the diarist reached the right result (the newspaper can probably censor its contributors), but through a wrong analysis.
