Question of the Day
Yesterday's question of the day asked: Which two journalism schools claim to be the first ones in the world? (Which one do you think is right?) That answer would be the Missouri School of Journalism at the University of Missouri (founded by Walter Williams in 1908) and the Ecole Superieure de Journalisme in Paris, France (founded in 1899) that both claim to be the world's first journalism school. Although Paris's school opened its doors first, "the question was discussed" in Missouri since 1895.
Congratulations to Ken Walker at the Tampa Bay Times for being the very first person to answer correctly! Honorable mentions also go out to M. Edward Borasky (who said "Paris wins"), Ron Harris of the Associated Press, Jim Winter at the Telegraph Herald, freelance journalist Amy Zipkin (who called it a tie), Edward Tenner (who pointed out "only actual opening counts"), syndicated columnist Margo Howard and Media Research International's Robert Fortner (who sided with Missouri) for also getting either one or both answers correct.
Today's question of the day: Someone once said "If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter." Who was it?
