The National Press Club has always stood for press freedom, and this edition of Update-1 features a couple of journalists who have been honored by the club in the past but are struggling for their freedom. Maria Ressa and Austin Tice were among the journalists remembered during events on World Press Freedom Day.
On Monday, May 3, The National Press Club will host a virtual event for World Press Freedom Day highlighting the cases of three journalists in need: Austin Tice, Maria Ressa and Emilio Gutierrez-Soto, all past recipients of the Club’s John Aubuchon Award for press freedom. In this episode of Update-1, Press Freedom Team chair John Donnelly speaks to Broadcast/Podcast Team co-vice chair Adam Konowe about the upcoming event and the plight of these and other journalists.
Southern Poverty Law Center President and CEO Margaret Huang says the U.S. is facing a crisis of "far-right extremism and deep threats to our democracy." This episode of Update-1 features part of NPC President Lisa Matthews' recent interview with Huang at a Headliners event. The issues they discuss include the increase in domestic terror attacks, why there has been a surge in white nationalist groups and how parents should talk to their children about rejecting hate.
