Columbia’s J-School Accuses Students of Cheating on the Final
Apparently some students got the wording of their two essay questions some days before they were supposed to. However, it was an open exam, with 90 minutes to compelte the test an time during a 36-hour period.
I am both amused and saddened by some of the comments made on Jeff Bercovici’s blog about it.
This unfortunately is the future of journalism, the creme de la creme.
Meanwhile, William Powers takes the media to task for its endless reporting on itself, at the expense perhaps of more urgent news. And also wonders if the ability to comment publicly is such a good thing.
Well, there, I disagree with him. I think the much larger voice of public comment than the few letters that see print is a very positive thing.
