Posted by JBowen on Mar 3, 20130 comments

An amazing number of advisers and students celebrated their creativity and willingness to engage in the viral potential of the Harlem Shake and Gangnam Style crazes recently. True student work should be celebrated and encouraged.

But wouldn’t it be nice – and appropriate – if journalism programs, no matter their platforms, would jumpstart journalistic excellence by devoting the same attitude and enthusiasm for publishing coverage that exhibits depth and substantive reporting skills?

At a time when we seek a Cure for Hazelwood, we need to showcase our best journalistic skills as much as those designed to entertain.
