@museumviews I'd definitely say that is problematic. While I recall the AP Euro History exams being very challenging on European history, the US has long had an issue with the lack of teaching of current events in Europe that needs to be rectified.
Progress or Problematic? Deutschland-Institut study shows among Dutch schoolchildren asked to name one famous German, dead or alive, most said Chancellor Merkel. In last study of 2010 most said Adolf Hitler.  http://www.spiegel.de/lebenundlernen/schule/niederlande-angela-merkel-ist-bei-schuelern-bekannter-als-adolf-hitler-a-1187632.html 
The @voxdotcom story by @lkmcgann on #GlennThrush is good but misses the point that the @nytimes may be hiding behind lawyers: Thrush's contract may say he can't be fired for this. Statute of limitations for these women has long expired. Legal ≠ moral https://t.co/5tTcEwJekm
Can the @nytimes explain the difference between standards on sexual misconduct & plagiarism re #GlennThrush ? Would #NYT keep a reporter whom multiple other reporters accused of plagiarizing their work? @lkmcgann outed herself re Glenn's behavior. She collected names.

What was your first job as a journalist?

My first unpaid job outside of my college newspaper was as an intern with The Addison Independent in Vermont. Great place to intern.

Have you ever used a typewriter?

Yes.

How is social media changing news?

Social media and the speed with which news is being reported makes accurate analysis and strong sourcing more important than ever.
