As a business journalism educator, I think it’s important for those doing the teaching to also be practicing the craft, and I write a monthly sports business column for Business North Carolina magazine in addition to some other business-related writing.
So it hurts me to see someone else teaching business journalism at the university level get criticized for their writing. But that’s what a Montana-based blog has done, taking an NYU professor to task.
The entry begins: “It looks like I learned why so much economics reporting is bass-ackward. This is probably too simple of an explanation, but Iâ€™m going to lay the blame squarely at the feet of Adam L. Penenberg, assistant director of the business and economic reporting program at New York University.”
