MPR News Update, AM Edition for Jan. 24, 2017

Tuesday, January 24, 2017

Good morning. Gov. Mark Dayton collapsed during his State of the State address Monday night, ending the speech early. Dayton was just reaching part of his speech where he was going to propose letting all Minnesotans buy into MinnesotaCare as a way to ease problems with the individual insurance market. Some criticism was leveled against the Minnesota media overnight for showing a picture of Dayton collapsing online. "But the time and the place dictates decisions such as this and there simply are no compelling reasons for journalists to shield viewers and readers from a potentially monumental moment in state history," writes MPR News blogger Bob Collins. | Forecast
