For our Tuesday class, I would like you to read this story that appeared in the New York Times on Sunday, in which we learn that prosecutors are demanding private information about current and former journalism students who’ve participated in the Medill Innocence Project at Northwestern University.
In other news, I have posted the slides from Friday’s and tomorrow’s class discussions (under Lecture Slides) as well as a study guide for Friday’s midterm (under Course Documents). The midterm will consist of short essays. You will be able to use your notes, but no books. You will have almost the entire class to do it.
