New publications are available at the Scout Report!

Missouri Digital News

Is it possible to wade through the wide world of news about Missouri without getting overwhelmed? This website makes the process a snap, and it’s a fabulous resource created by the Missouri School of Journalism in Columbia, Missouri. The program is supported by journalism professionals and students animated by The Journalist’s Creed, which was authored by the first dean of the University of Missouri’s School of Journalism, Walter Williams. First-time you should read the creed, and then navigate the site to follow live action and audio from the state’s house and senate. You can use the “Stories” area to look up recent news pieces by subject, date, and staff member. Moving along, you can search for information about state government, the Supreme Court dockets, and find out how each member of the state’s legislative body voted on recent bills. It’s a rather fine resource, and the Twitter feed is also worth a look.
