Corey Hutchins joins KDNK's Gavin Dahl on Booked to discuss his reporting on President Donald Trump's massive rally in Colorado Springs last week. Trump said of embattled US Senator Cory Gardner, "He's been with us 100%. There's no waver." Plus, he explains why a dozen rural newspapers ran PR as news, mostly without disclosing the writer was paid to make the County Clerks Association look good. And he touches on how the Denver Post is using algorithms for sports coverage, and addresses the sale of the Greeley Tribune from Swift Media to Alden Global. Corey Hutchins teaches journalism at Colorado College and covers media for the Columbia Journalism Review and Colorado Independent.
