Shelley offers thoughts on Free Speech Week

RTDNA Executive Director Dan Shelley is using Free Speech Week as an opportunity to illustrate how free speech benefits local communities and what would happen without it.

In his column, Shelley highlights attacks on journalists and how journalists are charged with continuing to produce trustworthy journalism in the face of threats.

He also provides examples of Murrow Award winners who serve the public through journalism and combating the erosion of the First Amendment.
