UMN VP Who Cancelled Documentary Resigns

Following the controversy over her attempt to cancel an environmental documentary critical of agribusiness, Karen Himle, the University of Minnesota’s vice president for university relations, has resigned.

Himle says that her resignation is unrelated to her decision to cancel “Troubled Waters,” and is instead timed to coincide with the end of Robert Bruininks’s term as the president of the U’s Twin Cities campus.

The report from Minneapolis’s Star Tribune covers the controversy in detail. There’s also a report from the U’s general counsel on internal deliberations over the film’s airing.
