We’ve all seen the news breaking on Twitter, on Facebook and on the TV news tickers, but how often does the rush to be first end in a chorus of apologies for getting it wrong? 

On Tuesday's Up to Date, the Media Critics join Steve Kraske to discuss the big issues in journalism today. 

Guests:

  • Peggy Lowe, reporter and editor for Harvest Public Media and former print reporter.
  • Derek Donovan, ombudsman for The Kansas City Star.
  • Pam Fine, Knight Chair for News, Leadership and Community and professor of journalism at the University of Kansas.

Up To Date Media Critics
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
