Dubious assertions in today’s “Mallard Fillmore”

The comic strip “Mallard Fillmore” frequently takes aim at the news media. On occasion, it goes after journalism education, usually under the title of “Meanwhile, at a journalism school near you…”

Today’s variation on the theme contains two dubious assertions:

  • The news media have trashed Mitt Romney’s Mormon beliefs.
  • Journalism professors wear ties.

I haven’t seen much evidence of either. Therefore, I respectfully request a correction.
