Jim Klurfield spent three decades as a reporter and editor at Newsday, the dominant daily on Long Island, N.Y. -- including two decades as editorial-page editor. Now he has a new career -- as director of the News Literacy Project at Stony Brook University, near his home. In a 51-minute audio stream, Klufeld narrates a PowerPoint description of the experimental news-literacy syllabus which the project taught to 400 undergraduates -- none of them journalism majors -- in the fall of 2007.
