ASNE hosts three roundtables with King County Library System

In May, ASNE's National Community and News Literacy Roundtables Project hosted a series of facilitated community discussions in partnership with the King County (Washington) Library System. As part of KCLS' "Everyone's Talking About It" adult learning programming, the roundtables covered homelessness, food insecurity and mental health at three KCLS libraries.

Join project leader Douglas K.

ASNE applauds enactment of FOIA Improvement Act of 2016

The American Society of News Editors applauds President Obama’s signing of S 337, the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, which enacted some much-needed and long-overdue reforms to the federal Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Particular praise is also due for lawmakers who ensured that this was a truly bicameral, bipartisan effort, as evidenced by the fact that it passed both the Senate and the House by unanimous vote. This could not have occurred without the leadership of Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Reps Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah), Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) and Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), all of whom dedicated significant time and effort to this issue over the past several years.
