STATEMENT FROM NEW YORK PRESS CLUB PRESIDENT STEVE SCOTT ON THE SHUTDOWN OF GOTHAMIST AND DNAINFO
This is a gut punch for journalism in New York City.

The journalists at DNAInfo and Gothamist told good stories. They told important stories. They won multiple New York Press Club awards for their work. Sadly, those stories may now go untold. Our city will be poorer for that.

The loss of good journalism is a loss for our democracy.

The New York Press Club sends its best wishes to these fine journalists. We stand ready to help you in any way we can.
STATEMENT FROM NYPC PRESIDENT STEVE SCOTT
A MESSAGE FROM STEVE SCOTT

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has fired a not-so-veiled shot across the bow of the news media. Journalists will not be intimidated by the Attorney General's threats. We will continue to do what we've always done: Report the news, using trusted, verified sources. We will continue to protect those sources. And, we will continue to defend the First Amendment and the right of journalists to do their jobs.

- NY Press Club President Steve Scott

New York journalism has lost a legend and a moral compass with the passing of our friend Gabe Pressman.

A tenacious seeker of the truth, there was no greater defender of the First Amendment than Gabe Pressman. He fought ferociously for journalists' rights. When he delivered his annual Free Press message at the Press Club's Journalism Awards dinner on June 5 (pictured), he was crystal clear: The First Amendment is under attack, and we can't let our guard down. We can't give up. We have to keep fighting for our rights as journalists.

Gabe's contributions to the field of journalism extended far beyond what his viewers saw on television. It was his hard work behind the scenes that kept the cameras rolling when some would have preferred they be turn off; he kept public meetings open, when some would have preferred they be closed.

Gabe was a mentor to countless young (and not-so-young) journalists. A compliment from Gabe meant you had done your job well.

The New York Press Club mourns the loss of our dear friend and colleague Gabe Pressman. Our thoughts are with Vera and Gabe's extended family.

-- Steve Scott, New York Press Club President
STATEMENT FROM THE NEW YORK PRESS CLUB
SECOND CIRCUIT AMICUS CURIAE BRIEF


New York Press Club members and friends:

We are committed to working for a free and open press. For that reason, the New York Press Club is joining more than 50 other news and journalists' organizations, in filing a Second Circuit amicus curiae brief, in a case that could establish a First Amendment right to film and otherwise record police in public spaces (there is currently no such Second Circuit decision recognizing that right). With the First Amendment being challenged and blurred at every turn, we, the amici, believe it is important to set this precedent in the Second Circuit.

We will keep you posted on progress.

Steve Scott
New York Press Club President
