Deb Halpern Wenger on an NPR interview with the Dean of Berkeley's J School, Neil Henry:
"The most controversial element of the interview involves Henry’s assertion that more journalists will need to be entrepreneurs. He suggests they won’t work for traditional media companies, rather they will be in business for themselves. Unfortunately, when Cohen tried to press him on whether this would result in “journalism for hire,” Henry really avoided answering the question.
However, he did say UC Berkeley’s j-school is working with the business school to develop courses that might help journalists make money outside the corporate journalism structure."
