Views of the News: Covering the fall of Roe v. Wade

The Supreme Court’s 6-3 decision in the case of Dobbs v. Jackson overturned abortion rights protected under Roe v. Wade. On this week’s program, we talk about how it was covered, who’s voices were – or weren’t – heard, and how it reignited the debate over journalists’ objectivity. Also, breaking down a ‘surprise’ hearing of the January 6 Committee, and giving credit to journalists working behind the scenes. From Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Kathy Kiely: Views of the News.

Travis McMillen is the senior media producer at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute. For KBIA, Travis oversees production of Views of the News and Radio Friends with Paul Pepper.
