Why it’s important to talk about media diversity

“As news coverage increasingly focuses on race, immigration and LGBT issues, it’s vital to improve the diversity and perspective of staff, sources and expert commentators,” writes Trevor Knoblich, ONA’s Digital Director. Read his blog post on the keynote conversation on inclusivity in newsrooms at ONA16. We’re thrilled to host Vanessa K. De Luca, Editor-in-Chief, ESSENCE Magazine; Lisa Stone, Digital Media Strategist and Co-Founder, BlogHer; Jose Antonio Vargas, Founder and Editor, EmergingUs, and moderator Alisa Miller, President and CEO, Public Radio International on Sept. 16.

Legal Updates

  • ONA had joined a letter earlier this month from RCFP to Cleveland officials objecting to the ban on use of gas masks during the Republican National Convention there, asking them not to enforce it against credentialed journalists. Philadelphia police say they will not use tear gas during the Democratic National Convention this week in the city, and are not listing gas masks as a prohibited item for attendees or media. Look for more tips from the DNC hotline, providing 24-hour legal aid to journalists covering the convention.
  • The Second Circuit issued an important decision in the Microsoft Cloud case, which has been pending for a year and a half, holding that the government cannot use Stored Communications Act warrants to access material stored on servers outside the United States. ONA joined a brief in this case, submitted in December 2014.
  • Citing strong public interest, ONA joined RCFP and the Associated Press in a July 15 letter supporting Judicial Watch’s motion seeking former Secretary Hillary Clinton’s deposition in a FOIA lawsuit concerning her use of a nongovernmental email account/server while working for the State Department.
  • ONA joined a brief supporting Google in its fight in Canadian court against de-listing from its search certain web sites worldwide. We are concerned the concept of a global injunction could be used against the global media as well as against Google. These same core principles prompted our opposition to the decision by the French data protection authority to require Google to de-list search results under the EU’s “right to be forgotten” regulations not only in France, but anywhere in the world.
