PT 003: Journalism, USDA

In this episode of Paper Trail Paul and Reggie talk about the impact reduced resources has had on journalism, how corporate journalists are under pressure to keep their numbers up, and the freedom rural journalists have to cover news in a way that doesn’t depend on clicks, tags, shares, reaches, etc. Our secondary story of the day deals with President Trump’s administration choosing to not hire a Unite State Department of Agriculture undersecretary and how that affects rural development.
