ASNE challenges officials, citizens to condemn attacks on journalists

The American Society of News Editors is shocked by the events of Wednesday, May 24, when Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian, was physically assaulted by Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte. This is the latest in a series of punitive reactions to reporters seeking to ask questions in public spaces. This comes after the arrest of Public News Service reporter Dan Heyman in West Virginia and the forcible detainer and eventual ejection of CQ Roll Call reporter John Donnelly by security personnel at the Federal Communications Commission as he tried to ask questions of an FCC commissioner. The fact that Mr. Jacobs was attacked by the very politician he was trying to interview marks a uniquely disturbing moment in the treatment of journalists.
