The j-school where I teach recently implemented a new and very strict academic integrity policy. Bravo, say I.
Part of the announcement sent out to all students enrolled in the program reads: “Violations of academic integrity—such as plagiarism and fabrication—are mortal sins in journalism that will end a career.”
And then what do we see on the Internet today, but that Fox News is misrepresenting page-groper Mark Foley as a Democrat.
Guess there’s one place where getting expelled from j-school for fabrication is actually a career-enhancer.
