NYGuild Statement on Al Jazeera America Closure


The NewsGuild of New York issued the following statement from President Peter Szekely on the announced closing of Al Jazeera America:

“Al Jazeera America’s abrupt decision to shut down will deprive Americans of one of the most reliable, high quality digital and television news outlets in the country. It is a sad day for American journalism. NewsGuild of New York members at Al Jazeera America are among the most talented journalists we have had the honor to represent, and we will vigorously advocate for them in the coming months. We will continue, as we have for more than 80 years, to be a voice for all journalists, and their best hope for fairness in an ever-shifting media landscape.”
