Yes, I was quoted by the Philippine Daily Inquirer last March 27 (Wednesday) regarding my views on the kind of students we have at the UP Department of Journalism. The article titled “Journalists in the making” was published on page C2 of the paper’s March 27 edition but the online version may be retrieved here.
All of the 11 interviewed UP Journalism students in the article are former students. In fact , the author, Bianca Consunji, happened to be my student in not one but three courses.
Is this the reason she chose to interview me? I doubt it. I think it just so happened that I was the only one present at the department on a lazy Monday (March 25) afternoon at the time when she was there.
Please read the article and tell me what you think. Thanks!
