In the aftermath of last November’s election, the big TV and radio networks sent their Washington reporters out to the Midwest and South to find out about this America thing they’ve been hearing about, because there wasn’t a reporter in the Midwest who could’ve explained what’s going on there to the rest of the country.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
