fair and balanced education?
don't get my wrong, i have absolutely no problem with getting into these things because i can come at this from both sides...and i'm excited and i can't wait to cause a ruckus in class. the point is, the other students. who knows what they've experienced, read, etc...so is this going to be a fair and balanced education?
another topic: this professor really seems to be into blogs. week two: "should we care that traditional journalism dies? why? what are the advantages and disadvantages of the blogosphere over newspapers?" she also has a few blogs (www.mystorylives.blogspot.com) and has a Huffington Post page... www.huffingtonpost.com/claudia-ricci/
she also recommends...Salon and a shitty Albany newspaper and its boring blogs.
anyways...here is a little blurb about my professor from her Huffington Post page...
"Claudia Ricci, Ph.D., teaches Journalism, English and creative writing at the University at Albany, SUNY, through the University's Educational Opportunities Program. A former staff writer for The Wall Street Journal and a prize-winning reporter for the Chicago Sun-Times, Ricci published her first novel, Dreaming Maples in 2002 after it was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. (available on Amazon.com). Her short fiction has been published widely. She edits a community writing space at MyStoryLives.blogspot.com."
well i’m completely excited to learn! lets see how this class goes!
