Review

"It's Not News, It's Fark" does more to advance the journalistic art than all the millions spent by the Poynter Institute, the Shorenstein Center, the Nieman Foundation, the Project for Excellence in Journalism, the "Columbia Journalism Review" and the "American Journalism Review," the Committee of Concerned Journalists, the various Annenberg outposts, and the Freedom Forum, combined...Instead of urging journalists to raise their standards the typical tack taken by the press-guardian-industrial complex Curtis puts the onus on readers, insisting that they become better news consumers.
