    I've got big green eyes and people used to say I looked like a frog so it isn't all that great :)

    All very valid points. In that case, I think I might have misread Josh's post. However, I feel like his meaning didn't get across accurately (our fault/his fault, whatever) for anyone in the first year. Maybe it was a tonal thing, as I think if it was written slightly differently it would have been much clearer.

    No hard feelings to any of you in the second year, I think the war's over now.

    It was a good meme.

    Have a great Easter :)

    Josh isn't trying to bash you guys for trying to hard. We're actually pretty amazed and slightly intimidated actually at how much you guys care about these issues and how smart and passionate you all are.
    That said, reading through CFJ blog posts is amazing yet mentally draining. While we hugely admire you guys' knowledge, passion, and developed opinions on complex issues, some variety wouldn't hurt; after all, these are blog posts, not essays or journal articles. They're meant to be entertaining or provoking discussion. You do the latter beautifully, but journalism is like a D20; it has loads of different sides and you all seemed very focused on the "intellectual serious journalism" side of it -- that's not a bad thing, per se -- I wish I was as passionate about serious issues as I am about social media's role in society. But maybe try your hand at something new? After all, Buzzfeed, Vice news, and The Sun are journalism as much as the Financial Times and The Indie are.
    We admire you guys greatly for your intellect; but to be good journalists, you need to be vested in all parts of the industry, not just the one that makes you look good in front of your lecturers.
    And @ Asuni, Josh is from Angola. He can definitely pronnounce your name
    -- don't make assumptions.
