Charles Koch Foundation Announces Grant For American Society of News Editors’ Legal Hotline Service, Educational Resources

 

The Charles Koch Foundation is pleased to announce an $80,000 grant for the American Society of News Editors, enabling the expansion of ASNE’s Legal Hotline service, and establishing a new series of workshops on First Amendment issues.

As Kevin Goldeberg, legal counsel for ASNE explains, “I’m very excited to be able to expand our outreach to editors and their staff around the country. It’s no secret that news organizations are facing an increasingly hostile legal climate and that many do not have the available resources needed to protect and promote their legal rights. My goal is to put ASNE members in a position where they can create systematic procedures to avoid legal problems, better differentiate between true threats and frivolous attempts to bully, and proactively assert their right to information. I’m especially grateful to the Charles Koch Institute for making this happen. It’s an organization I’ve been lucky to work with recently, and I truly appreciate their dedication to free speech and open government.”
