The reference to "woolly-heady theories on mass communication" hardly seems NPOV.

I have no idea what the statement "The School has the highest percentage of technology resources, per student, of any school at Columbia" means. I also have a hard time believing it's true -- surely each medical student has more technology available than each jouralism student, and the same is likely true at the engineering school as well.

The article actually calls J-School alum Pat Buchanan a "liberal columnist"! Liberal compared to Mussolini, maybe, but by any reasonable standard he is quite conservative. I'll go ahead and make the change.


I've reverted the article back to the version by Fuhghettaboutit 01:27, 13 February 2006 (39424738). Too lazy to fix the vandalism that's been left behind by subsequent edits by and on 02:51, 13 February 2006 (id:39435103) changed the current dean of the J-school to some other guy (Current dean is still Nicholas Lemann [1]). on 02:52, 13 February 2006 (id:39435211) claimed a horse graduated from the school.

Fair use rationale for Image:Cjournalism.gif[edit]

Image:Cjournalism.gif is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 18:42, 2 June 2007 (UTC)


This article reads much like a brochure that would be handed to prospective applicants. True, Columbia's journalism school is considered the best, or at least among the best, but the article reads very much like a promotion.
