More Than Scribblers
“The great task for journalism educators, in addition to providing practical training and academic breadth, is to equip their students with a firm sense of the public trust: how it developed, what it means to America, how it manifests itself or is betrayed in the work of journalists and news organizations. Journalism programs, departments, and schools need to become the places where such concepts are nurtured, protected, and ceaselessly advocated.”
—William Woo (1939-2006), Stanford journalism professor and former newspaper journalist and editor-in-chief of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, “Journalism and Serving the Public Trust,” 2003
