Media Critics: What The Ferguson Headlines Say About The Press

Frank Morris

Covering intense events in the heat of the moment isn’t easy.

On Thursday's Up to Date, we turn a critical eye toward the press in the wake of the events in Ferguson, as the Media Critics join us.


  • Derek Donovan, The Kansas City Star
  • Pam Fine, University of Kansas
  • Frank Morris, KCUR
  • Margie Freivogel, news editor for St. Louis Public Radio


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.
