Al-Jazeera Covering "Scam"; Still on Bandwagon?

From Al-Jazeera America:
Remember the good ol’ days when the grueling work of law school paid off with a prestigious, high-paying career? Soaring tuition, poor job prospects, and dwindling salaries are changing that perception. Enrollment is at a historic low, casting the future of the legal profession into uncertainty.
For those keeping score at home, reputable traditional domestic media outlets barely give any space to the so-called "scam," while media outlets from the middle east (sound effect: frighteningly dissonant chord) are giving space to muckruckers like Paul Campos.

Who are with, eh?

At least the article gives appropriate deference to twitter, with views from law students extolling the virtues of Law.


  1. Seven days a week, Al-Jazeera kicks the ass of the New York Slimes and even trashier Yankee publications.

    Just sayin', but AlGore's Jazeera-America is not a Middle-East media outlet. It's bought and paid for All American media (VP Gore got some $70 mio by selling his "Current TV" to AJ, which became AJ-America).

  3. The comments on Twitter using Al-Jazeera's hashtag #AJAMstream are pretty brutal:

    This is only the beginning.

  4. Excellent news! At this point, only the academic pigs and waterheads can defend the law schools.
