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.
