WSJ Journalists Flunk Copyright School and Journalism School

I posted Friday on how YouTube's Copyright School propaganda video flunks copyright law here. Now the Wall Street Journal posts a video where one journalist interviews another journalist about copyright law (below).

According to the "journalist" interviewee, YouTube has posted the video because it just wants to communicate that "copyright law is pretty complicated" and wants everyone to be "as educated as possible."

Sorry, but journalists working for the same company interviewing each other is not journalism, it's just fakery. On top of that, they have misunderstood what this video is and what its effect will be. WSJ "reporters" Lauren Rudser and Jennifer Valentino-DeVries have now flunked both journalism school and copyright school.
