Freedom of the Press

  1. Post publishes Letter to Editor from NPC president urging release of journalists

    The Washington Post published the following letter from Myron Belkind, president of the National Press Club, on Oct. 31: “Glossing over repression” (an Oct. 29 editorial in the Washington Post) lamented “the elimination of a once-robust free press” in Egypt. The National Press Club is deeply concerned about the continued imprisonment in Egypt of media professionals, including three Al Jazeera journalists who have been sentenced to prison terms ranging from seven to 10 years for carrying out their duties.

  2. Press Club welcomes statements urging end to impunity in the murder of journalists

    The National Press Club on Nov. 3 warmly welcomed recent calls by the White House and the United Nations to end the widespread impunity that has been the response to the murder of hundreds of journalists around the world. Since 1992, 632 journalists have been murdered with complete impunity, according to the New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists. Murder constitutes nearly 70 percent of work-related deaths for journalists, with local reporters making up 96 percent of those deaths, CPJ said.

  3. National Press Club joins petition urging protection for digital reporting

    The National Press Club has joined some 7,000 media organizations, journalists and other individuals in calling on President Barack Obama to protect what the campaign calls the “Right to Report in the Digital Age.” In backing the petition, the NPC has argued that surveillance, intimidation, and restrictions on journalists threaten to undermine their ability to gather and report the news.

  4. National Press Club deplores Islamic State murders of journalists

    The National Press Club expressed outrage Tuesday at reports that the Islamic State militant group has killed a second journalist, the second in two days. According to Reporters Without Borders, Mohanad Al-Aqidi, the Sada news agency’s Mosul correspondent, was murdered Oct. 13 by several gun shots to the head. Two days before, the Islamic State had publicly beheaded Raad Mohamed Al-Azaoui, a cameraman for Sama Salah Aldeen TV, in Samara.

  5. Egyptian reporter, National Press Club urge release of Cairo's jailed journalists

    A reporter whom Egyptian authorities had imprisoned without charge for 10 months has issued a video statement at the National Press Club urging the government in Cairo to release at least 11 other journalists who are still in jail. Abdullah Elshamy, a reporter for Al Jazeera Arabic, was imprisoned from August 2013 until June 2014. During his incarceration, he was on a hunger strike for about half a year, and he lost about a third of his body weight.
