Teachers selected for Reynolds High School Journalism Institute

ASNE's Youth Journalism Initiative will continue its national effort to inspire youth in the ever-changing world of journalism by training 140 secondary-school teachers at the 2014 Reynolds High School Journalism Institute

Check out new platform for Community Connection and Inclusion

As we announced last week, the Community Connection and Inclusion project, a partnership between ASNE and Journalism That Matters (JTM), has a new home -- the Engagement Hub. It's a platform to support peer-to-peer learning among people in news organizations who want to connect more authentically with diversity in their communities. As the proof-of-concept takes shape, we plan to reach out to other news outlets, such as public media and online news associations, to join the partnership.

Endorse 'Model FOIA Regulations' for better transparency

We recently endorsed a proposal, created by three non-governmental organizations focused on access to information, to create "Model FOIA Regulations." These regulations would guide all agencies of the federal government toward what we hope will be consistent implementation of the federal Freedom of Information Act in a way that provides maximum transparency and access to government information. 

Imminent Supreme Court action might heighten need for shield law

Those supporting the Free Flow of Information Act -- the formal legislative name for the bill that passed the Senate Judiciary Committee, which would create a federal reporters shield law -- are advised to keep one eye on the Supreme Court in the coming days. That's because the court could decide as early as Monday whether to hear the appeal of The New York Times reporter James Risen from a lower court decision holding that he must testify regarding the source (or sources) of classified information cited and otherwise referred to in his 2006 book "State of War."
