Testimonials

Hilary Russ

Journalist, Reuters

“One of the NewsGuild’s biggest strengths is that they understand the journalism business so well. We all want to do the best journalism we can. And it’s important to know that it’s not just about a contract… the Guild wants to make sure that their journalists are doing the best work that they can. And that’s important to me because I care about the quality of the work that I do.”

Richard Perez-Pena

Reporter, New York Times

"I've worked in non-union shops where the pay was lousy, the benefits were lousy, there was no protection from the whims of bosses, there wasn't much camaraderie among the employees, and people couldn't wait to move on.

Senior Theater Editor, New York Times

"So much of the digital world involves being on call for what feels like 24-hours-a-day, with a news cycle that never stops. One of the biggest differences for me and my digital colleagues is that the NewsGuild has our back, understands the need for a balance between work and life, and makes sure we’re properly compensated for the time that we work. Being represented by the Guild has made a huge difference for us."

We have entered an era in which just about every move social media and tech companies make has ramifications for journalism. Whether it’s a new article format, a change in terms of use, or an additional subscription option, publishers often find themselves following where platforms lead. Today, the Tow Center for Digital Journalism is releasing […]

A TV news segment in Maine last week threw into stark relief the peril of pursuing journalistic balance, especially when one side is openly racist. In a clip aired August 14 on Portland’s WCSH-TV Channel 6, reporter Tennyson Coleman interviewed “Mike,” an anonymous Mainer and self-described adherent of the so-called “alt-right” who attended the now […]

The News Integrity Initiative — the $14 million news literacy project based at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, backed by funders including Facebook, Craig Newmark, and the Ford Foundation — is getting a clearer path forward. This morning, NII published a new roadmap for the project, which is designed to better lay out the...
