Views of the News: Covering the California Wildfires

Turn on cable news. What do you see… right now? Chances are it’s not coverage of the record-setting wildfires burning entire cities in California to the ground. Hundreds have died and thousands are homeless, it’s not getting the level of media coverage we’ve come to expect for east coast weather disasters such as hurricanes and nor’easters. Why not? Also, a deeper look at that Vogue travel writer’s words about Kansas City, Missouri, whether it’s time for Mark Zuckerberg to step down as Facebook’s CEO and the new Fox News streaming video app, Fox Nation. From Missouri School of Journalism professors Amy Simons, Earnest Perry and Mike McKean: Views of the News.
