J-School state of mind

Webster’s defines journalism as “the collection and editing of news for presentation through the media.”

We recently ran across this clip, showing a group project performed in Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism. (We use the word “journalism” very loosely, as does the University. There isn’t much stated or implied here about telling people what happens. It’s all about the advocacy, baby.)

Turn up the volume, and enjoy:

What do you think about the future of the US media? With “journalism” students embracing advocacy, rather than actual “journalism,” will the public ever be able to get the real stoy about anything?
