Thursday, April 24, 2003Lee Bollinger's plan to revitalize the Columbia School of Journalism is ripped in this article by Washington Post Columnist Robert Samuelson titled "Snob Journalism". "Bollinger's vision amounts to snob journalism: journalism by an elite for an elite" writes Samuelson. "Bollinger says the label [professional] is needed to create "stronger standards and values" against nasty commercial pressures. How condescending. Most good journalists already believe in accuracy, independence and fairness."
