Michigan State Journalism School Director Asked to Resign

J-Drama Alert!  In a decision that reeks of either randomness or behind-the-scenes fighting, Jane Briggs-Bunting, the director of the journalism school at Michigan State University, was asked to step down from her position ASAP by a new dean- during her first day on the job.  Hmmmm.

No administrative explanations so far.  Briggs-Bunting: “I’m very concerned. We are one of the schools at the cutting edge of redefining journalism. I really would hate to see that momentum slowed.”  Here’s a State News brief on the incident.  I’m interested to read a related editorial or column on the matter soon!

In the meantime, anyone have any inside knowledge of the admin’s BB gunning???
