CU strategizes to better link journalists, public

At the start of the semester, CU journalism professor Mei-Ling McNamara finds students who not only can’t tell her what’s on the front page of any paper any particular day, they don’t know who the secretary of state is.But she doesn’t just throw up her hands. She keeps giving them news quizzes and grading them rigorously. The students soon figure out that they need to stay informed.
