Are journalism students up to code?
By Neil Reisner
Ecclesiastes put it this way: “There’s nothing new under the sun.”
I recall the Old Testament curmudgeon every time I come across another pundit proclaiming how journalism schools must teach every student “data-based journalism,” how to wrangle “big data,” and how to create “data visualizations” and “code.”
It’s not true.
