In the interest of advancing debate (not macho posturing I hope):
Eric, Ted Pease asked you a direct question at
http://hardnewscafe.usu.edu/?p=8031. Did we miss your reply?
He wrote: "I am concerned to hear Newton threaten loss of private-sector
support for journalism education unless things change. What private-sector
support? Since the Tribune partnership of the 1990s, we've seen industry
support pretty much dry up (except for good scholarship support). Because we
choose not to be accredited, the Knight Foundation doesn't support strong
professional programs like ours. Maybe the private sector-and foundations
like Knight and Hearst and others-should look more widely for J/MC programs
where professionals and professionalism are valued, and not limit themselves
to ACEJMC-accredited departments."

Professors talking to professors about how journalists don't understand...
Not the best way to advance the issue. How about a public debate? Let's see
how many of your points hold up to counterargument.
