The Temple Journalism Review studies the Philadelphia-area media landscape, pointing out those who excel at the craft of journalism as well as those who behave dubiously.

We strive to stimulate excellence in the region’s journalism in all its forms – from newspapers and magazines, to radio, television and the Web, including non-traditional news outlets.

We are students, consumers, practitioners and appreciators of the craft. Our goals are to make sure that the media fairly portray the Greater Philadelphia Region and to ensure that the citizens are properly informed.

This project is part of the Temple University Journalism department.

Please feel free to participate on the site by posting comments.

Specific questions can be directed to TUJReview@gmail.com.


So you can follow along, here are a few of our regular features:

HOOTS! – Stories, images, video, art or any other journalistic information that serves the public beyond conventional expectations.

HOWLS! – Journalistic work that falls short, with factual errors, sloppy reporting, bias, laziness or other unacceptable behavior.

What is Local? – We’ll study the locations of stories covered by the Greater Philadelphia region’s media outlets to see what gets covered.
