The New York Times has had to walk back its story on a "criminal" probe of Hillary Clinton's private email server while the paper is vigorously defending another of its exclusives...on abuses in the nail salon industry.  The first Republican presidential debate is only a week away.  Some wonder whether all the scrambling to meet the Fox News criteria for inclusion is worth the trouble.  More bad news for the newspaper business: major layoffs and poor performance with minority employment.  Media companies are embracing a new revenue source that raises ethical questions.  And research shows "visual" news sites are more successful.

Missouri is among 12 states cited in a new government survey with very high obesity rates.

Missouri conservation officials are asking bow hunters to help keep track of wildlife by participating in a survey.

The state Conservation Department will mail surveys to participating bow hunters next month. They'll be asked to record how many deer, turkeys and furbearing animals they see and where, when and for how long they hunt.

Conservation officials say the survey has been conducted since 1983 and helps the agency manage wildlife and set hunting rules.
