Journalism education, part ...
I usually get a bit snarky about the debates over journalism education because they tend to deteriorate rather quickly to the intellectual snobs vs. anti-intellectual unwasheds stage.
Not so this excellent pair of posts.
Pat Thornton kicked it off with his ruminations on what a journalism education should be these days.
Mindy McAdams responded, not so much as a point-counterpoint, but as a fill-in-the-cracks and provide more insight post.
And the comments on each are delightful.
I could add something, because I've written a fair amount about j-ed and why it has its troubles in the university (click on the tag below), but it would be just so much noise here. So I'll sit back and partake of an excellent conversation and invite you to, too.
