What Do YOU Think? .....

"We need 'Philosophy of Journalism,'" says professor and columnist Carla Romano in this post at the Chronicle of Higher Education. I'd like to know what you - especially those with experience in the business - think about that.

Romano suggests that, "every journalism student should be required to take a course in 'Philosophy of Journalism,' to develop the intellectual instincts and reflexes that will make the approach to truth of both practices a permanent part of his or her intellectual makeup."

Not a bad idea, really ... and it's an idea that that could, with serious application, yield tremendous and positive results for both news producers and news consumers. But, really, what do YOU think?

Thanks to Frank at Books, INQ. The Epilogue for the heads-up.
