Event description

Description

Comedy as a tool of journalism (and journalism as a tool of comedy)- Jeff Jarvis

Wed., Jan. 10th and Thurs., Jan. 11th 10am-12pm, Room 330

We will examine how comedy is useful to provide perspective and to meet journalism's core mission: to call bullshit. Every student will be expected to bring to class an example of comedy-as-journalism that informs the audience. We will examine the uses of various flavors of comedy -- satire, ridicule, irony -- and also examine the ethical boundaries. And we will hear from a comedy writer who writes about the news.
