The rise of the internet and last year’s global market free-fall were said to be harbingers of the “death of journalism,” yet both old and new media seem to be thriving at the 5Cs. Like a headache and a cup of coffee, TSL remains a Friday morning staple, and The Claremont Conservative has become a divisive campus sensation.
A student panel discussed the role of student publications on campus, the effect of new media on student journalism, the state of journalism education at the 5Cs, bias in student media, standards of reporting, and school funding for student media. The panelists were Trevor Hunnicutt of The Student Life, Abhi Nemani of The CMC Forum, Charles Johnson of The Claremont Conservative and The Claremont Independent, and Stephanie Almeida of The Elephant Room. There were about 70 in attendance.
