A Way to Save Local Journalism!

Coming up on Thursday 10/8 7 PM on KKFI 90.1 – kkfi.org

An important show on the proposed Local Journalism Sustainability Act, discussing concerns and opportunities.

The Local Journalism Sustainability Act attempts to support democracy with tax credits for local media. We invite comments from candidates to represent residents of the greater Kansas City area in the US Congress and others. Dean Baker, Center for Economic and Policy Research, shares some of his thoughts on citizen-controlled subsidies for media. Professor Ruby L. Bailey, U of Missouri School of Journalism, and Mark Masson, Missouri Press Association, comment. This broadcast is excerpted from a virtual (Zoom) forum on this issue October 3 which took place on Oct 3, 2020 at 12:00 PM Central Time (US and Canada).
