From the mainstreaming of social media to "fake news" indictments from the chief executive, the journalism industry is in the midst of sweeping transformation. Today, the dean of the Missouri School of Journalism explains how his school teaches new reporters to adapt to the current and future media environments. Then, Kansas City saxophonist Bobby Watson tells us how he found inspiration for his latest album, Made in America, in an impressive set of black pioneers.
