Dumenco blasts j-school for honoring Huffington

Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications should know better than to honor a woman — Arianna Huffington — who thinks journalists should work for free, writes Simon Dumenco. It’s one thing for a j-school to draw attention to itself by creating a self-referential journalism-about-journalism award, he says, referring to the Mirror Awards. “But it’s quite another thing to give recognition to people who damage the very profession of journalism.”
