What's new on Jay Rosen's plate, I hear: "The forthcoming STUDIO 20 track is both master's level instruction and an editorial brand for video, audio and web products that will originate from NYU Journalism's headquarters at 20 Cooper Square with its state-of-the-art studio facilities. The emphasis is on high quality production for a live public beyond campus; instruction is built around that."
"The Tow Foundation today announced significant grants to two prominent journalism schools in New York City to enhance teaching and research for interactive journalism and new media.
"The City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism will receive a $3-million challenge grant to establish the Tow Center for Journalistic Innovation, which will study new business models for journalism and create an incubator to help develop new journalistic products and services using Internet technologies. CUNY will be required to raise $3-million in matching funds.
r just a moment consider this small fact: for a long time a black man in many parts of the United States was denied even the honorific "Mister" by the white community, and was instead called by his first name, like a child, no matter how elderly and esteemed he might be.
Now a black man will be called Mr. President.
