The Daily Beast’s rankings are terribly stupid and factually incorrect.
ALSO I AM VERY OFFENDED. If no one went to journalism school, we’d all end up like HuffPo bloggers and that would be awful.
I couldn’t agree more. Journalism is one of the most important public services in the world that provides knowledge used to make informed decisions and inspiration to make change.
Without formal training, journalists would miss and/or leave out important information due to undeveloped reporting. Everything would be unreadable copy, riddled with grammar, style, and spelling errors. And don’t even get me started on photography and photojournalism.
Get over yourself, Daily Beast, you don’t know shit.
