Reporters Without Borders is an international organization based in Paris, France whose mission is to defend freedom of the press, journalists and netizens all around the world. They put out an annual Press Freedom Index, ranking press freedom in countries around the world.  In their latest index, the United States has fallen from a rather pathetic 20th to a dismal 47th.  On the Reporters Without Borders website, they write that the "United States (47th) also owed its fall of 27 places to the many arrests of journalists covering Occupy Wall Street protests."

Josh Stearns, Program Manager with Free Press,  has been closely following the arrests of journalists, and he'll talk about it on Tell Somebody on Tuesday February 21 at 6pm on 90.1 FM KKFI

We'll also talk to Mitzi McFatrich, executive director of Kansas Advocates for Better Care, about Kansas Executive Reorganization Order No. 41 Governor Brownback’s plan to move programs not specific to either aging or disability from SRS and KDHE to the Kansas Department on Aging.

Tune in!
