DePaul Faculty In The News: Mike Conklin

5 Jan

I guess an upshot (if you can call it that) of the Rod Blagojevich drama is that it makes a perfect “teachable moment” for college professors who are looking to incorporate theory and practice for their students.  School of Communications professor Mike Conklin, who we mentioned in Demon Tracks earlier last year about his class on Election ’08, was mentioned in today’s Daily Herald about the possibilities of incorporating the Blagojevich news into classroom work.

“There are a lot of ways to look at this from a journalism perspective,” Conklin said. “One is the issue of journalistic integrity, and the importance of not caving in to pressure. What does it mean that the Tribune did not, in fact, fire anyone at the governor’s request?”

You can read the full article (and more insight from Conklin) at the Daily Herald website.

    i’m hoping Blagojevich will inspire Congress to finally grow a pair and start doing what’s best for the people they represent (by putting this guy away for a long time)
