Defending Journalists

NAB is gravely concerned about acts of violence against journalists while covering protests or simply doing their jobs in local communities. Provided below are resources to help stations navigate dangerous situations.

From our country’s beginning, the right of the press to challenge the government, root out corruption and speak freely without fear of recrimination has been central to our democracy. Through accurate newsgathering and reporting, broadcast journalists keep the public informed.

Dedicated women and men in local communities across the country are putting themselves in harm’s way to cover the news; to shine light on the many facets of the challenges we face today. They are working to hold local officials and citizens accountable, to find the answers, and to seek justice. This has never been a more important task. NAB strongly condemns those who assault broadcasters simply for providing the most trusted news and information to keep Americans safe.
