Views of the News: Danny Fenester released from Myanmar jail

Journalist Danny Fenester is back in the U.S. just days after a judge in Myanmar sentenced him to 11 years in prison. What led to his release, and what’s the situation like for other journalists in that country? Also, why Pope Francis is thanking journalists, localizing a global climate change summit and Taylor Swift’s grab for what is hers. From Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Kathy Kiely: Views of the News.
