Here are some links: National Public Radio, Chicago Tribune, USA Today.
A fellow journalism educator at another university said he wasn’t surprised and that last year he had begun requiring his reporting students to learn how to use a camera.
We’ve been doing that for about six years at the University of Tennessee.
