From the response to cases of Ebola here in Texas and now in New York City, to the shooting and aftermath in Ferguson, Missouri, to the battle over Houston’s equal rights ordinance, and concerns about undocumented children crossing the border, the news media has had a lot of important stories to examine in recent months. From time to time on Houston Matters, we examine how journalists locally, nationally, and internationally have handled some of the major stories impacting our lives.

We turn to a panel of Houston-based journalists to discuss the best and worst of recent news media coverage, on issues here in Houston, across Texas, across the country, and around the world. We welcome your thoughts for Mike Snyder, the assistant city editor for the Houston ChronicleDoris Ellis, publisher of The Houston Sun, and Houston media blogger Mike McGuff.
