  • Today’s WTF moment, brought to you by The New York Post: Check out today’s lead story in the Post, ‘Guinea Pig’ Kids Stir Furor: City Allows Racial Studies In Schools. And what are these evil, evil, “racial studies?”…Oh the moral outrage! How dare these researchers investigate racial discrimination and harrassment in our public school system?
  • Latinos: codependent, not punctual, fatalist and macho: Wow, so this is what multicultural marketers do, huh? Reduce an entire population into a stereotype?
  • Ed Bradley’s legacy: If you believe…: The students didn’t know much about what made the man special at the beginning of the class, but by the time they heard him talk about journalism ethics, saw some of his best work, and heard from people who had known him from the earliest days of his career, they understood why he was so worthy of study.
