Global Journalist: Rich Clarkson, Pioneering Sports Photographer

Fri, 20 Jan 2017 16:28:32 +0000

Rich Clarkson is one of the founding fathers of modern sports photojournalism. Born in 1932, Clarkson's early photos of Wilt Chamberlain playing basketball at the University of Kansas in the 1950s were published in a new magazine called Sports Illustrated. That launched a career that included photographing 60 NCAA men's basketball championships, nine Olympics and many, many other sports events. On this special edition of Global Journalist, Clarkson talks about how photojournalism has changed over the decades and the stories behind some of the most memorable sports photos of our time.

Farm Economy Braces For Another Year In The Red

Thu, 19 Jan 2017 21:38:21 +0000

Farmers across the Midwest are trying to figure out how to get by at a time when expected prices for commodities from corn, to wheat, to cattle, to hogs mean they’ll be struggling just to break even. “Prices are low, bins are full, and the dollar is strengthening as we speak and that’s just making the export thing a little more challenging,” says Paul Burgener of Platte Valley Bank in Scottsbluff, Nebraska.

Views of the News: Reporting in Trump's America

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:53:09 +0000

The world will be watching as President-elect Donald Trump takes the oath of office Friday. Among the big issues we’re keeping an eye on: what his relationship will be with journalists. We got a glimpse of it during last week’s news conference, in which he lashed out at CNN’s Jim Acosta. Is that the new normal? Also, Facebook’s newest effort to filter fake news, the ice storm that wasn’t, and 65 years of morning television. From the Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, John Fennell and Mike McKean: Views of the News.

Why The Opioid Epidemic Hits Rural America Hard

Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:07:20 +0000

A doctor handed Melissa Morris her first opioid prescription when she was 20 years-old. She had a cesarean section to deliver her daughter, and to relieve post-surgical pain her doctor sent her home with Percocet. On an empty stomach, she took one pill and laid down on her bed. “I remember thinking to myself, ‘Oh my god. Is this legal? How can this feel so good?’” Morris recalls.

Commentary: Don't Expect Trump to Change on January 20

Mon, 09 Jan 2017 19:23:20 +0000

If, as the old saying goes, past performance is the best predictor of future behavior, then I have a pretty good idea of what we can expect from President Trump. First, he won’t change how he behaves after January 20. Why should he? He gets to give the inaugural address, and not Hillary Clinton, in part because there was one constant Donald Trump, the one we’ve known for years. Love or hate how he behaves -- that’s how he’ll act when he’s president. Indeed, “acting presidential” is how Donald Trump is behaving at any given moment. It has nothing to do with people’s expectations of how a president “should behave.” Second, Donald Trump doesn’t care what anyone thinks. As he has said about himself, he’s pretty smart and knows more than the generals. If you don’t like what he says or what he does, that’s your problem. There is only one very interesting exception to this: when you attack him or his businesses personally. He will go after you with a targeted Tweet. A good example of this is
