Essential components of any decent journalism course.

This unit confronts some social and legal issues - how to treat sources, interviewing, trust and integrity as core elements in practicing journalism.

I like the course and the teachers. I don't like the peer review because most of the students don't work hard enough on their reviews. I do want the challenge and the feedback.
