RTDNF recognizes those defending First Amendment


The Radio Television Digital News Foundation is recognizing those journalists and First Amendment leaders who exemplify responsible journalism and who practice their constitutionally guaranteed duty to seek and report the truth.

The RTDNF today announced the honorees for its 29th annual First Amendment Awards Dinner. The list of honorees is here. The awards will be given out March 13 in Washington D.C.

The Foundation points out that this year’s awards come as journalists have faced increasing, active assaults by people in positions of power and physical attacks while on the job.
