  • The death of O.J. Simpson has brought up many questions for those in the news media, things we haven’t thought about since the mid-1990’s. What’s changed in how we approach covering domestic violence, race and the criminal justice system? What effect did the criminal and civil cases have on American pop culture? Also, an NPR editor’s criticism of the network leads to some introspection among staffers, movie marketing gone wrong, and the portrayal of journalists on the silver screen. From the Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Kathy Kiely: Views of the News.
  • Where’d the sun go?! Now that the 2024 eclipse has passed, we’ll talk about what made Monday’s phenomenon magical, and how that was reflected in the coverage. Also, Facebook’s apology to a Kansas publication, why a Colorado reporter was thrown out of a GOP event on public property and the crowning of the 2024 NCAA basketball champs.

  • As digital news organizations shutter, many of their archives go dark. Sure, it costs to continue to host websites, but what’s lost when the websites are wiped entirely? Also, why journalists don’t identify juveniles charged with crimes, and two free speech cases go before the Supreme Court.
