Statement from President Grant Glickson on shuttering of DNAInfo and Gothamist
The NewsGuild is deeply disturbed by billionaire Joe Ricketts’ inhumane decision to abruptly shutter two beloved local news institutions, DNAInfo and Gothamist. Joe Ricketts has shone a light on the deep systemic problems our industry is facing. Journalists, no matter the medium, need to come together and to fight for the industry and for one another. Journalists are demanding representation in an industry that, while at the same time is volatile and ever-evolving, is critical and necessary for our democracy. Now is the time to rally. Now is the time to fight. For the media professionals who are unionized, carry your card with pride. For the unorganized, now is the time to stand up and demand a voice in your newsroom.
