“And, in light of the tragedy at the Capital Gazette in
Annapolis, Maryland, let us not forget that the willingness to sign your name
to an article, a column, a masthead continues to require an uncommon bravery we
often take for granted.” -- Christopher Carosa, president of the National Society of Newspaper Columnists, for USA Today.

WHAT'S HAPPENING

People are still talking about Annapolis after a man armed
with a shotgun and smoke grenades stormed into the newsroom of a community
newspaper chain in Maryland’s capital on Thursday afternoon, killing five staff members, injuring two others. It
prompted law enforcement agencies across the country to provide protection at
the headquarters of media organizations.

You can help honor the memories of the Capital Gazette
journalists by acknowledging a moment of silence. At 2:33 p.m. EDT Thursday,
SPJ will join journalism groups and newsrooms around the globe in a moment of
silence to honor the five employees who were killed.

To help newsrooms protect their journalists, ASNE and APME
have created a tip sheet explaining how to react if an aggressor enters the building.

In another act of violence against a journalist, Crime
Reporter José Guadalupe Chan Dzib, who was murdered Friday night in Quintana Roo, had been threatened
but was not provided with official protection, the United Nations Office
of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in Mexico (OHCHR) revealed.

High school educators across the country have been clamping
down on students who publish articles on protests, sexuality, and other
hot-button issues. The killing of the opinion piece on the National School
Walkout protest was the third instance of conflict between John Burdett, the
principal of Prosper High School in Prosper, Texas, and the school’s news
publication, Eagle Nation Online.

CafePress, an online retailer, was in hot water for selling T-shirts emblazoned with the
phrase “Rope. Tree. Journalist. Some assembly required.” CafePress pulled the
shirts soon after the outcry began, but then the question shifted to why it
carried them in the first place. The message has been seen on t-shirts at Trump rallies for almost two years. But the fury over
the message has increased since last week, when five journalists were killed in
a shooting at the Capital Gazette newspaper in
Annapolis, Maryland.

CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Sanjay Gupta has appeared in
at least one advertisement for his brother’s Democratic congressional campaign,
raising questions about his objectivity in reporting on the
president’s health. At the very least, experts say, it creates the perception
of bias. (And we all know what the SPJ Code of Ethics says about that.)
