Murmurs from the media
As a signal of mounting media woes, Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism is reducing its class size and cutting six positions (1,300+ shares as of this morn), and this is when we learned that it costs $93,000 to get a one-year graduate degree in Journalism from there. The Guardian is backpedaling on its accusations of the Whisper App's privacy violations (400+). "This is bad, @Guardian, considering the coverage likely resulted in the shutting down of @Whisper's news operation," admonishes Mashable's Brian Ries. And here you'll find the "exit interview" of Mathew Ingram, per CJR (700+). "When you take venture capital money, they’re golden handcuffs," Ingram explains.
