Toward Knowledge-Based Criticism

Thomas E. Patterson, "Informing the News" (2013), coverMy reading of Thomas E. Patterson’s Informing the News: The Need for Knowledge-Based Journalism (Vintage Books, 2013) sparked this series of posts from early 2014. I extrapolated from his analysis of the current state of journalism, journalism education, and the industries that distribute journalism through the print, broadcast, and internet platforms, to apply his ideas to the state of criticism, and expand on them.

The links below will take you to my responses, the most recent first. I suggest starting with the earliest post and working your way forward from there.
