Welcome to the new ASNE.org!

Today marks a fresh start for the American Society of News Editors with an updated website and new features to help you be a more effective newsroom leader.

The new ASNE.org is fully responsive, making for ease of use from smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices.  We’ve also established new sections with featured content on the organization’s top priorities: First Amendment, Leadership and Diversity

From leading your news organization through transition and change to best practices for engaging diverse readers, you’ll find useful, actionable information at the new ASNE.org. Check out Inside the Newsroom, your new home for articles that help you lead and inspire your team.

Those seeking leadership talent can also take advantage of the new ASNE Job Board, where ASNE member news organizations can post openings at no charge. 

Special thanks to ASNE Senior Information Specialist Megan Schumacher and Communications Coordinator Jiyoung Won for their efforts on the website revamp. 

ASNE condemns Trump's attempt at press censorship

The American Society of News Editors stands against presidential candidate Donald Trump's attempts to censor news coverage of his campaign by denying access to outlets whose coverage does not correspond to his wishes, the latest being The Washington Post. Candidate Trump's move to sanction coverage of his drive to win the presidency is an unprecedented dismissal of the First Amendment freedoms essential to our democracy. The public is best served when a fearless, unfettered and independent press is present at all campaign events, speeches and political forums. We urge the Republican Party to return to its historical support for openness and transparency and call on both the party and its presumptive nominee to reverse course on these undemocratic sanctions and attempts at censorship. In the meantime, we encourage news outlets to ignore, reject and oppose all unconstitutional restrictions that any party, candidate or government official attempts to impose.

“A Matter of Dignity” began as a rather routine inquiry into reports of abuse at state-licensed group homes for people with disabilities.

But as reporter Chris Serres and photographer David Joles dug in, they discovered something different and in its own way more troubling: A huge community of Minnesotans – 19,000 in group homes and 12,000 in sheltered workshops – were being systematically cut off from their families and the rest of society in jobs and housing that leave them isolated, frustrated and often stigmatized.
