Reporters Committee Girding for Fights

#mocoll:  The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press is realizing that change and dedication will be needed at both the legal front as journalists face major hurdles but also at the production end as they realize the low esteem the public often has for the work of journalists.

A statement from the group includes: “[We] also agreed on the importance of leading a coordinated response to these challenges while rallying the public in support of the First Amendment.”

“This past election year has left the press’ standing with the American public at its lowest point, caused many of us to question ourselves and each other over mission and methods, and now finds us facing a new president who expresses not only disregard but disdain for many of the rights and freedoms journalists have long taken for granted,” said David Boardman, chairman of the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP)
