GJR fall issue preview

This week’s Gateway Journalism Review eNewsletter provides a sneak peek into the upcoming fall issue. The issue focuses on the 2012 elections, the condition of editorial staffs at Midwest newspapers and media law topics, including the provocati

ve question of who owns Marilyn Monroe? The answer, says St. Louis attorney Mark Sableman, is all of us.

John Jarvis’ article about media coverage of Missouri U.S. Senate candidate, Todd Akin, offers a glimpse at our election coverage. Sam Robinson’s fourth installment of a series on the BPI v. ABC News case will be followed up in the print edition with a two-page graphic timeline on the passage of agriculture disparagement laws, which legal scholars think are unconstitutional. The next print GJR also will have an original piece by our new St. Louis editor Terry Ganey telling three untold stories of Anheuser-Busch Companies Inc.

The issue is slated to hit mailboxes just before the general election Nov. 6. There is still time to subscribe! Email us at gatewayjr@siu.edu to get on the mailing list for just $25 a year, or $40 for two years.
