Politics: UNC journalism students prove transparency trumps scandal

  • In shocking J-School news, Monty Cook, the former editor of the Baltimore Sun who caught on as a journalism instructor at the University of North Carolina, recently had to quit his job over a fairly salacious scandal. This is not about that, really. Our interest in the story is how his students handled the incident. They reported on it with a level of transparency that should be respected. They offered up every detail they could and showed that, even as their instructor lost his way, their journalism chops were there, remaining level-headed through the whole mess. Few journalistic enterprises can claim that they would handle something like this so well. source
