About

I’m a student at the University of Missouri School of Journalism, planning on another major in Political Science and a minor in Economics. As a political junkie, I’m always posting about political races but I also have a keen interest in the intersection of media, politics and economics.

I don’t have a strong affiliation with either political party, but you’ll notice I lean more toward the liberal end of the spectrum – mostly on social issues but only slightly on economic issues.

Primarily, though, I like numbers and facts that help us get closer to the objective truth. I know what you’re thinking – ‘Ha, objective! Truth?’ – but really, it’s possible for reporting to get at the best available version of the truth through rigorous objective methods. Since I’m mainly posting political commentary, I try to back myself up with facts and I like to examine value-based claims to find if they have any supporting evidence.

I do not claim to be an expert on politics or economics or journalism: I’m a student with an interest in doing some further research into the topics I’m learning about in classes.
