ASNE, APME issue response to President Trump's statements in support of Representative Greg Gianforte

President Trump’s  enthusiastic support Thursday of Montana Representative Greg Gianforte's May 24, 2017, assault on Ben Jacobs, a reporter for The Guardian, represents a disturbing elevation in attacking the media, which threatens journalists at home and around the world. It shows reckless disregard for the First Amendment.

ASNE, APME join amicus brief is support of Ohio TV station

As national journalism organizations, ASNE and APME don’t often weigh in on purely state or local controversies. Every once in a while, however, a piece of legislation or pending court case comes along that merits — or in this case, demands — our participation regardless of how localized it may be.  Anderson v. WBNS-TV, Inc. is one of those cases.

FAA Reauthorization Act threatens newsgathering

ASNE and APME members might not be aware that the FAA Reauthorization Act (HR 302) contains multiple provisions that may threaten their ability to gather news via the use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), commonly referred to as “drones.” Note that we don’t oppose the overall bill – which is certain to be passed by the Senate this week – but hope that we can effect removal of three provisions in particular, which have been incorporated into the bill from other, free-standing pieces of legislation: the Preventing Emerging Threats Act of 2018 (S 2836 and HR 6401) and the Safeguarding America’s Skies Act of 2018 (HR 5366).
