The staff of The Reader strongly stands in solidarity with NOISE in its efforts to get credentials for Gov. Pete Ricketts’ news briefings. Ricketts is a public official whose chief concern is answering to the people. Requiring stipulations that allow him to decide who is and is not a “bona fide journalist” is harmful to the mission of journalism and the foundation of the First Amendment, and shameful as his family prepares to launch an unproven news outlet.
