Prince Warned Us About The Internet

Among today's ongoing discussion about the power of restraint when reporting - restraint when communicating, judging, learning -  a recent video shared by @historyinmemes on Twitter https://twitter.com/historyinmemes/status/1557040901410766848?s=20&t=MRa4KoHw336RQe7HzBNQ4w has come to mind. In the clip, Prince, at the 1999 "Yahoo! Internet Life Online Music Awards," paused while presenting an award for "Online Pioneer." He shares his ominous concerns over the over-use and over-dependency people at that time were giving the World Wide Web. Who would have thought how much that dependency would grow over the next two decades, as his warning continues to resonate with crowds today?  ‘Inside Sources with Boyd Matheson https://kslnewsradio.com/category/insidesources/,’ former opinion editor at Deseret News https://www.deseret.com/authors/boyd-matheson, takes you inside the latest political news and current events, providing higher ground for today's discussions.

Helena Bottemiller Evich on the White House's Upcoming Food Conference

Food insecurity and nutrition https://www.ers.usda.gov/data-products/ag-and-food-statistics-charting-the-essentials/food-security-and-nutrition-assistance/#:~:text=The%20prevalence%20of%20food%20insecurity,had%20very%20low%20food%20security. are major concerns for people around the world and in the United States. In fact, ‘sometime’ in September, The White House will hold a Conference on Hunger, Nutrition, and Health https://health.gov/our-work/nutrition-physical-activity/white-house-conference-hunger-nutrition-and-health. This is the first time a conference like this will be held in the US since 1969, but with few details coming out, the question is, what will this conference actually cover? And how will it impact the quality of life for American families? Today, Boyd is joined by an award-winning reporter and founder of FoodFix.co https://foodfix.co/, Helena Bottemiller Evich https://foodfix.co/about/ to hopefully answer those questions and give us a guide for the upcoming White House Food Conference https://foodfix.co/a-guide-to-the-white-house-conference-on-hunger-nutrition-and-health/.  ‘INSIDE SOURCES WITH BOYD MATHESON https://kslnewsradio.com/category/insidesources/,’ former opinion editor at Deseret News https://www.deseret.com/authors/boyd-matheson, takes you inside the latest political news and current events, providing higher ground for today's discussions.

Wisdom from Bob Woodward: Restraint Always Works

Right now there is a lot of attention on former President’s Trumps Mar-a-Largo home FBI search, but 50 years ago the media was swarming to report on a different presidential scandal. Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Watergate breaking news https://www.washingtonpost.com/watergate-50th-anniversary/. In that half-century, has the growing hunger for fast-paced news outrun our need for restraint in reporting? Boyd breaks down the lessons he has learned from Journalist Bob Woodward, who helped break the Watergate story https://www.deseret.com/2017/12/18/20624355/boyd-matheson-watergate-reporter-s-advice-restraint-always-works, on how when it comes to life and reporting, ‘restraint always works.’  ‘INSIDE SOURCES WITH BOYD MATHESON https://kslnewsradio.com/category/insidesources/,’ former opinion editor at Deseret News https://www.deseret.com/authors/boyd-matheson, takes you inside the latest political news and current events, providing higher ground for today's discussions.

There is power in shifting conversations to high ground and removing divisive wedges

Boyd loves having people from across the political spectrum join the show, as the more we expose ourselves to others’ ideals the more we see that we all have similar goals. But what happens when a guest crosses a principled line? Boyd faced that problem last week when a guest attacked not the principles or politics of Speaker Nancy Pelosi, but her personally. What did Boyd choose to do? Shift the conversation to higher ground. That’s the thought that Boyd wants to focus on for his monologue today, how we can choose to shift conversations to higher grounds and the power it gives us to remove divisive wedges.  ‘INSIDE SOURCES WITH BOYD MATHESON https://kslnewsradio.com/category/insidesources/,’ former opinion editor at Deseret News https://www.deseret.com/authors/boyd-matheson, takes you inside the latest political news and current events, providing higher ground for today's discussions.
