Kevin Woster: Gov Noem & The Press

May 7, 2020

In The Moment … May 7, 2020 Show 812 Hour 1

Governor Kristi Noem and her staff have been responding to national and local press coverage of her administration's leadership during the novel coronavirus spread in South Dakota. South Dakota journalists are responding, publically, to the governor's response.  COVID-19 has become an opportunity to look at how we see the world on one hand, and on the other hand. Kevin Woster writes the column "On the Other Hand" for SDPB. You can find his work online at sdpb.org/woster. He joins us today with a perspective on how journalists interact with the governor's office and how disasters, emergencies, the national gaze, and social media can alter that interaction.
