    Believe it or not, my local JC, Sacramento City College where I used to teach is starting a photojournalism program. I was shocked when I former colleague told me. I think it's a waste of money and a total disservice to unsuspecting students that think they're going to get a PJ job when they graduate.

    ... but that's always been the case with most things taught in an academic college settings. You get your just get your first degree in some
    kind of nonsense, then either study something more marketable in grad school or simply enter the school of hard knocks in the real world.
    There is a valid argument for a well-rounded education, but that should not be confused with earning a living.

    It's a celebrity driven media world these days. Newspaper picturedesks (especially the tabloids) don't see any value in a picture unless it contains an "A" list celebrity.
    Photojournalism is no longer a viable way to make a living, you rarely see it in newspapers anymore, only on walls at an exhibition. Freelances increasingly find no-one wants to pay them for their pictures .....cameraphone users are sending in stuff for free, and editors can get free pictures off Facebook.

    The pendulum always swings in both directions. I too lament the decline of photojournalism. But once it's almost gone, I think people will miss it and bring it back.

    Few things carry the same power as a reportage by a dedicated photojournalist.

    It's never been the easy route to riches, but I think it's in human nature to get out there and show the truth.

    Speaking as a person with no cable or satellite, and never having watched any of the so-called news outlets, I post this link so as to make my point that it is the agenda that runs off the newspaper readers, not necessarily so much that newspapers and magazines are so antiquated as to lose readership on that count. I was looking for actual percentage ratings, but had to settle on this link that bears out the obvious. As long as the media pushes the tired, shopworn, and annoying narrative, they do it to themselves.

    And please--I only report the facts, don't kill the messenger. Thanks.

    But Tom...

    It isn't that Fox News appeals to those who don't like newspapers.

    It is that Fox News appeals to those who cannot read the newspapers.
