Journalism Students Revolt?

Well, I feel compelled to post it now that I've seen it. I don't know how journalism students found out about it, except by word of mouth, but even The Australian newspaper picked it up earlier this week. An anonymous student at UQ's School of Journalism has started a blog, whats wrong with the j school.blogspot.com. To be fair, he's also started the blog whats right with the j school.blogspot.com.

How do I know this anonymous blogger is a 'he', you may well ask. One of the commenters names him by first name. Heck, why not go out on a limb and name him here, saving you the trouble of searching through the blog itself. It's Cameron. I know only one in the course, but that doesn't necessarily mean anything.

As someone said to me today,
Why be anonymous? Surely it would make a better story if you said you were failing because you criticised the journalism department, rather than because they're not teaching you.

I would be surprised, however, if Cameron is failing, or doing particularly badly. I'm not sure if he's changed his tune, but his latest post from this morning says,
To all who have suggested something be done regarding this issue, nothing more can be done on these blogs. Your motivation dictates the future. Not somebody elses. If you really want to make a change, go for it.

True, and so the ineptitude or not of the j-school should have no bearing on whether or not we get jobs. It was always up to our own hard work and initiative.
