From a recent Guardian article on the future of the university by the philosopher Stefan Collini:

"It is worth emphasising, in the face of routine dismissals by snobbish commentators, that many of these [new] courses may be intellectually fruitful as well as practical: media studies are often singled out as being the most egregiously valueless, yet there can be few forces in modern societies so obviously in need of more systematic and disinterested understanding than the media themselves".
