Before the journalist came into the picture, did the students get free newspapers? If so, from their school / university / college?

Did the journalist write an article on how unnecessary it was to give students free newspapers? Or that they were using them inappropriately?

Something about paper conservation relevant?

Before the journalist came into the picture, did the students get free newspapers? Some of them did, but they had a hard time of it, same as after the journalist came into the picture If so, from their school / university / college? No

Did the journalist write an article on how unnecessary it was to give students free newspapers? No Or that they were using them inappropriately? No

Something about paper conservation relevant? No

Considering the answer to the first of your questions, a better puzzle statement might be "Because of a journalist, students continued to have a hard time getting free newspapers."

Title relevant?

Is it relevant what the journalist wrote about?

Were there only a limited number of free newspapers, and it was difficult to procure one because of the popularity of the paper or the journalist?

Please clarify one thing though... Do you mean that the journalist didn't help make it easier to get free papers, but the situation got no harder? So is the journalist relevant at all?

Was it a general newspaper that everyone would read, or something closer to a college newsletter?

Did the journalist write about:
Sports?
Politics?
Current Affairs?
Entertainment?
Finance?
Education?

Were there going to be more free papers, but because of what the journalist wrote, there weren't?

Was it a general newspaper that everyone would read, or something closer to a college newsletter? Please clarify - what is "it"?

Did the journalist write about:
Sports?
Politics?
Current Affairs? This is closest but still doesn't really describe it accurately
Entertainment?
Finance?
Education?

Were there going to be more free papers, but because of what the journalist wrote, there weren't? No. The number of free papers was never supposed to change.

it = The newspaper referred to in the puzzle statement.

Since the number of free papers remains the same, it would only be hard to get free papers if
1. The paper was really popular, began to lose popularity, but regained it because of the journalist?
2. There was a long queue for the free ones?
3. It was somehow difficult to reach where they were distributed?
4. Something else?

Did she write something like a gossip column?

Since the number of free papers remains the same, it would only be hard to get free papers if
1. The paper was really popular Yes, began to lose popularity No, but regained it because of the journalist? No and FA
2. There was a long queue for the free ones? No
3. It was somehow difficult to reach where they were distributed? Noish
4. Something else? There just weren't enough for everyone who wanted one, that's all.

From your request for a clarification, I have to ask, does the journalist write for the newspaper tht was given away for free or some other one?

Did the journalist actively work to keep the no. of free papers low? Or was it an indirect consequence of what they wrote?

Did the journalist actively work to keep the no. of free papers low? No Or was it an indirect consequence of what they wrote? Yes but it wan't the number of free papers - remember the number of free papers was never supposed to change.

Does he not write very well? If so, is that why the 'free' papers retained their popularity?

What he writes...
Something you would normally read in a newspaper?
Is it an editorial? or an opinion?
Science & Technology / Medicine?

If he wrote for the 'free' newspaper instead of the other one, would it have been easier? or harder? (to procure a freebie)

So just to see that we are getting it right... the writer worked for a different paper? The number of free copies was static, but demand for them was expected to go down, thus allowing more students to get them?

Important where the demand went down? teachers?

because of something the writer wrote, demand did not go down, and students still had trouble getting papers?

Did the piece the writer wrote put people off switching to the paper he wrote for?
Did it stop something happening that would have reduced the demand for papers? that paper in particular?
Did it cause somthing to happen that stopped a general decline in readership?

Is the opinion he expressed relevant? had he not expressed an opinion would it have had the same result?

Is it relevant exactly what he writes about or the type of article he is writing? is it a feature? a leader? a general news piece? an interview? an obituary?

Important where the demand went down? Yope teachers? Yope

because of something the writer wrote Yes, demand did not go down Demand was not the issue, but... , and students still had trouble getting papers? Yes

Did the piece the writer wrote put people off switching to the paper he wrote for? No
Did it stop something happening Yes that would have reduced the demand for papers? Again, demand was not the issue that paper in particular? See above

So I take it that demand is not the issue then?

But then neither is supply since the number of paper is static...

So therefore logically the point at issue is means...

So some point of issue was considering not stocking the paper? which would have freed up more papers for the students? and as a result of his feature continued to stock the paper, thus...?

Correction:

"...which would have freed up more papers for the students" should be YESish, something did free up more papers for the students, but it's not that any "point of issue" as going to not stock the paper...

Correction to the Correction:

Of course "did free up" should be "would have freed up", because the thing that was going to happen never happened, because of the journalist.

RECAP:

The college was giving away free newspapers (USA Today, Washington Post, etc.). However, professors were taking the papers, leaving fewer for students. There was a plan being considered to make the papers accessible to only students, so that they would have an easier time getting them. However, because of something that a journalist had written in the school newspaper, this plan was never implemented. The specific mechanism that would be used to control access to the papers is relevant.

I don't think so but please rephrase What they did with the newspapers? did they sell them on? is it relevant which sections they read? How they disposed of them? No to all of these

Spoiler

At the University of Maryland, College Park, a computer science professor and three students discovered security flaws in the school's ID card system. This was reported in the Diamondback, the school newspaper, and led to a re-encoding of the ID cards.
Later, students were complaining that free newspapers distributed by the school's "Collegiate Reading Program" were being snatched up by professors and graduate students, leaving fewer for undergraduates. A plan was drawn up to put ID card readers on the newspaper dispensers, to ensure that only students had access to them.
However, since the new, re-encoded ID cards no longer had the information about whether the holder was an undergraduate, graduate student, or professor, this was not possible.

Diamondback articles:
