Invitation to attend climate change seminar at ASNE-APME 2014

 
How do editors, bombarded with information about climate change, discern fact from hype? What should your news audience know about the regional and national policy implications of climate change, and why should they care?

 A remarkable journalist and an even more remarkable man.

Help us promote 1 for All First Amendment Challenge

 
ASNE's Youth Journalism Initiative encourages editors to promote The 1 for All First Amendment Challenge, a nationwide event among secondary school teachers that spurs First Amendment education.

The 1 for All First Amendment Challenge will recognize the top 40 teachers with a $1,000 prize. Teachers who wish to be considered should submit their lesson plans, activities and student projects at 1forAll.us. Entries will be judged by a panel of journalists and educators and accepted on a rolling basis throughout the 2014-15 school year.

You have another great reason to attend the ASNE-APME conference Sept. 15-17 at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago. That is the special post-conference workshop we're working on with the highly regarded Metcalf Institute for Marine & Environmental Reporting

Help us raise concerns about proposed cybersecurity legislation

 
ASNE and media organizations are extremely concerned about the proposed Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA) that may be introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Cali., this week and even pushed through the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence as early asThursday. Review a pre-introduction discussion draft of the bill. Once you read that and finish this summary, you'll understand why we're concerned. We hope you'll join us in airing your concerns to your senator, the intelligence Committee and the Senate at large.

Exciting program in store for you, join us in Chicago!

 

The city that loves to innovate -- from pizza to skylines -- has a huge crush on journalists.

 

Join us for the historic ASNE-APME conference Sept. 15-17 at the Hyatt Regency in the heart of downtown Chicago. It's the first time that the leading organizations for news-organization leaders are getting together to toast journalism then, now and into the future.

  • At NAHJ: Aug. 6-7, before the NAHJ Multimedia Convention & Career Expo in San Antonio

Send your applications as soon as possible to asne@asne.org if you'd like to attend the Institutes at NABJ or NAHJ. To attend the Institute at ASNE/APME, apply by Aug. 1

Fighting back on excessive FERPA secrecy

 
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) has, for some time, been a serious impediment to anyone reporting on education issues, especially campus crime issues. The law is intended to prevent access to educational records -- and most of us wouldn't quarrel with the idea that a reporter or anyone else can't get access to a student's grades or transcripts -- but that definition is often extended to things that bear no reasonable relationship to the educational process (It's often invoked by university athletic departments to cover up student-athlete scandals.). 

Voice your support for FOIA reform bill introduced by Senate

 
You may recall (since we circulated an alert about it) that the House of Representatives passed comprehensive Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) reform legislation last summer. However, our celebration of this key legislative action was cut short when we learned soon after that the Senate didn't intend to move the House bill, and instead Sens. John Cornyn, R-Texas, and Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., two longtime champions of FOIA and open government, were drafting their own legislation. So we set to work with these and other members of the Senate and their staff to ensure that this Senate FOIA reform bill would improve the federal FOIA in several ways.

ASNE's three Minority Leadership Institutes for 2014

 

In case you missed our Friday announcement, here are details of three Minority Leadership Institutes we will be holding in 2014:

  • At NABJ: July 30-31, before the NABJ Convention & Career Fair in Boston
  • At NAHJ: Aug. 6-7, before the NAHJ Multimedia Convention & Career Expo in San Antonio
  • At ASNE/APME: Sept. 14-15, before the ASNE/APME conference in Chicago

ASNE continues push for shield law

 
A couple of weeks ago, we alerted you to the fact that the Supreme Court would be determining whether to hear The New York Times reporter James Risen's appeal from a Federal Appellate Court decision that there is no First Amendment or common law privilege, which protects a reporter from having to testify in federal court proceedings (and, for good measure, even if there were, he would likely have to testify anyway.).

Thanks from Dow Jones News Fund for ASNE's support

 
Below is a note from ASNE member Linda Shockley, deputy director of the Dow Jones News Fund, thanking ASNE officers and members for their help in the successful recruitment of this year's DJNF college internship programs.

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.
