Defending Media Studies
Monday, August 29, 2005
There have been a lot of sneering comments in the Media over the summer claiming Media Studies is an 'easy' or 'soft'A level. This article on the BBC site offers a good defence of Media Studies. Look also at the previous posting on exam results to see how the Long Road results compare with the national averages.

A new concept ? The idea of Citizen journalism in the UK has really taken off as a result of the London bombings as people posted their photos from their mobiles to sites like the BBC. Read an interesting article about it here and on the ethics of these images here
