What Pittsburgh (Don’t Laugh) Can Teach Obama
Struggling cities like Detroit could learn a lot from the Pennsylvania city's rebirth.
Random thought, but I wonder how many former Pittsburgh journalists there are out there beyond the burgh. I know I talk to several. I further wonder how many there would be if we had had a major J-school here in town over the decades. (not a dis to the many programs that are here). But I actually asked the question once of why there was not a J-school here at Pitt and if it had ever been contemplated. There was a clear answer. Not being a center of the national media industry it never made much sense to invest in starting up a school focused on media.
I wonder if Fineman ever checks in here?
