Here’s another interesting article from The New York Observer, this one about the situation at the Columbia School of Journalism and journalism education in general. Ron Rosenbaum presents some interesting problems and solutions, so the article is well worth your time. But I have one petty little problem with it: like so much criticism of journalism from journalists, this article is heavy on craft but light on theory. And that’s what I see as the problem with journalism and j-school education. (via MediaMinded)
