Take a stand for journalism

The Milwaukee Newspaper Guild reports that the Newspaper Guild-Communication Workers of America has called for a "day of action" on December 11 to stand up for journalism. "Guild members must take the lead in the fight to preserve journalism and news industry jobs," says Guild President Linda Foley. "We're calling on news industry employees everywhere to stand up for journalism and to stand with their colleagues who have had their jobs and livelihoods slashed by corporate media barons."

An accompanying Web site, savejournalism. org, will soon offer a place for users to tell stories on how jobs cuts have affected quality journalism, as well as a central point to download flyers or to order stickers and wristbands in suppport of this effort.
