State of the First Amendment results to be released
The First Amendment Center, in partnership with the National Press Club, Freedom Forum and the American Society of News Editors, will release results of its 2011 State of the First Amendment Survey on July 12 at noon in the National Press Club Conference Rooms.
The presentation will be given by Ken Paulson, ASNE president and First Amendment Center president and chief executive officer. The authoritative survey, which has explored public perspectives on First Amendment freedoms for the past 14 years, will focus on public attitudes toward a free press, the credibility of various news media and the rights of student news organizations.
This event will begin with a luncheon starting at noon, with the speech beginning at 12:30 p.m. and ending at 1:30 p.m. Tickets are $18 for Press Club members and students, $29 for guests of members, and $36 for general admission.
