Guardian Journalist on the button shocker

Talking about the plethora of journalism degrees out there Nick Davies said,
"But there is a danger with the courses: there are now hundreds of them which claim to teach these skills, but a great many of them are genuine crap, taught by people who haven't the faintest idea of how to do the job."

Of course having thousands of jopurnalists without the first idea about how to do the job is a brilliant wheeze. If the fourth estate is filled with media-ocrity then who will be left to criticise?
