    If we're being honest, we laugh at people on television who accidentally say curse words, or reporters and photographers who have to react quickly before a bad situation gets worse. But, we rarely know the story behind the story. Here's one of those. Missouri School of Journalism professors Earnest Perry, Mike McKean and Amy Simons discuss the issue.

Columbia is about to lose its commercial airline service to Memphis, Tenn.

Beginning in September, most flights from Columbia Regional Airport will fly to Atlanta, rather than Memphis.

Currently, Delta Air Lines offers one daily flight to Atlanta and the rest of the flights go to Memphis.

Delta said Monday that starting Sept. 5, the morning flight Sunday through Friday will go to Memphis, while the midday and evening flights will go to Atlanta. On Saturdays, the morning and afternoon flights will go to Atlanta.
