A group of J-School students. A project to write a journalist’s oath of ethics. Pretty standard stuff, right?
This rambunctious group of grad students add a little hip-hop twist to their assignment, freestyling their oath to Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind.” In-jokes to avoid the mistakes of Jayson Blair and Stephen Glass. And the promise to “assume nothing, G. Cause if you assume, son…” Fun to watch these future journalists liven things up a bit.
