Without Big Trade Deals, Midwest Farmers Worry They’ll Lose Out

Wed, 24 May 2017 19:50:55 +0000

President Trump made campaign promises to pull the U.S. out of big international trade deals and focus instead on one-on-one agreements with other countries. But that has farmers worried they will lose some of the $135 billion in goods they sold overseas last year. Two years ago, Missouri rancher Mike John expected the U.S. beef industry to grow by providing steaks and hamburgers from the Midwest to hungry eaters in Japan. He was planning on the Trans Pacific Partnership , or TPP, a massive trade deal among 12 countries, including the U.S. and Japan. It took eight years of negotiations to get each nation involved to agree to lower tariffs. Some economists expected the pact to add $3 billion dollars to the U.S. agriculture industry. Trump, however, called the TPP a disaster and pulled the U.S. out .

GEORGE KENNEDY: Local Democrats Knuckle Down to Rebuild the Party

Wed, 24 May 2017 19:25:19 +0000

Top to bottom, the 2016 election was a disaster for Missouri Democrats. Republicans came out of that campaign holding six of our eight seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, five of the six statewide offices based in Jefferson City and overwhelming margins of 117 to 46 state representatives and 26 to eight state senators. Only U.S. Sen. Claire McCaskill and State Auditor Nicole Galloway, neither of whom was on the ballot last November, kept statewide offices in Democratic hands. Even Boone County, an island of blue in a state turned red, elected a Republican state senator and put a Republican on the County Commission... Read the complete column at the Missourian.

GEORGE KENNEDY: Lots of Noise, Little Action From the General Assembly

Mon, 22 May 2017 21:35:08 +0000

Let’s take a couple of minutes to celebrate the accomplishments of the 99th Missouri General Assembly, which finished its 2017 session a week ago. We won’t need much more time than that. Our elected representatives passed a record-low number of bills. That is almost certainly a good thing, considering the import of most of those that were sent to Gov . Greitens . Still, there is cause for celebration. That cause begins with the legislators’ agreement to defy the governor and fully fund the K-12 public school Foundation Formula for the first time . Even there, we have to note that they trimmed down the formula from its original scale. But this action stands out as by far the most significant victory for their constituents...

Global Journalist: Women Kurdish Guerrillas Battle ISIS, Stereotypes

Thu, 18 May 2017 21:48:23 +0000

Many groups around the world are involved in the battle against the Islamic State. But one group stands out: that’s a group of women guerrillas from the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, or PKK, who are battling the extremist group in Syria and Iraq. Their story is the subject of a new documentary called “Gulistan, Land of Roses,” by the Kurdish-Canadian filmmaker Zayne Akyol. The film won the Doc Alliance Selection Award at the Locarno International Film Festival in Switzerland and screened at the 2017 True/False Film Festival in Missouri. On this special edition of Global Journalist, guest host Joshua Kranzberg speaks with Akyol about the making of the film in Iraqi Kurdistan and the challenges faced by women soldiers in the Middle East.

Views of the News: Did Trump Give Russians Classified Information?

Wed, 17 May 2017 19:13:10 +0000

The Washington Post reports that President Donald Trump shared classified intelligence with a Russian envoy during a meeting in the Oval Office last week. The Trump administration denies the report – while the president is tweeted to the contrary. Where’s the truth? Also, the Chicago Tribune’s parent company makes a play for the Sun-Times, a Colorado law exposes journalists voting habits, and a story of modern-day slavery in the United States. From the Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Mike McKean: Views of the News.
