Published on 30 Dec 2018, 21:10
Reuters reports that journalists and reporters are scheduled to be the guests of honor at the New Year’s Eve party in New York’s Times Square on Monday. Organizers cited the need for a celebration of press freedom after an unusually deadly year for journalists at U.S. news outlets. Joel Simon, executive director of the Committee to Protect Journalists, told reporters that organizers approached his group because of “the perception that the journalism and journalists, in particular, are under threat and their role is being questioned.” Simon will be joining Mayor Bill de Blasio to launch the ball drop.
