Howard Kurtz considers how the press treats space flights between disasters–as a routine occurrences. But great explorations are anything but routine and anything but safe. We’ll soon be hearing those voices that say we should cut NASA’s funding and slow down our space program. I wonder where mankind would be if such voices had prevailed in other eras of great exploration.
The Rhetorica Network
I offer commentary on the rhetoric of the American conversation, especially as it unfolds in documentary film, the news media, and politics. Check out my feeds on Twitter and Instagram. Also be sure to see my work at Carbon Trace Productions, a non-profit documentary film studio in Springfield, Missouri. I am a Professor of Media & Journalism at Missouri State University. I teach classes in mobile journalism and documentary filmmaking.
