“Journalism Schools Alter Curriculum After Anderson Cooper Takes Off Shirt”

Newspaper Death Watch got you down?  Let’s lighten things up.  A colleague with a sense of humor sent me this link to a *satirical* Dateline Hollywood story about the future of journalism education in this country.


Apparently, Anderson Cooper’s recent “60 Minutes” report on Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps has impacted the journalism community less for its content and more for its manner of reporting, which involved Cooper stripping down to his swim trunks at one point to race Phelps in the pool.  Shirtless reporting to become all the rage?  According to a Syracuse University j-prof, yes.  Read on, enjoy, and remember, it’s satirical.  :-)
