Views Preview: Ragtag Society Cuts Ties With The Crossing

Oct 22, 2019

The Ragtag Film Society severed ties with The Crossing on Friday over a message delivered in a sermon that was hurtful to many in mid-Missouri’s transgender community. Also, the author of last year’s anonymous Trump “resistance” op-ed in the New York Times is back with a new book, the growing number of local news deserts, here and abroad, and family-friendly workplace policies that address every phase of life. From the Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Ryan Thomas: Views of the News.
