Presented by the Media Law Resource Center (MLRC) Criminal Law Committee
The tragedy at the Capital Gazette in July and recent bombing attempts have underscored that we have entered a frightening new era in journalism. Whether in their own newsroom or out covering news where allies of the president are encouraged to turn on reporters as the “enemy of the people,” the physical safety of members of the media is under attack as never before, and serving as reporters’ advocates has taken on new meaning.
Please join us for this webinar that is focused on newsroom safety and security best practices. Our panel discusses developing safety protocols, assessing online threats, and reevaluating concerns posed by pro se libel plaintiffs and other media gadflies in the wake of recent events.
