SB News-Press Editors To Be Honored

A couple friends of mine will be receiving an ethics-in-journalism award at the Society of Professional Journalists convention in Chicago later this month.

If you've been reading LA Observed or the LA Times you've heard their story. They were among the initial seven editors who quit the Santa Barbara News-Press for the best of reasons — they believed the paper's top management was asking them to violate the SPJ Code of Ethics. The SPJ award will honor nine journalists who have departed that newspaper since the exodus began. The number of journalists departing that staff has now grown to 14.

I'll be blogging from the convention in Chicago, where I'm told at least one of the initial group of seven will attend to accept the award on behalf of all. Check back Aug. 24-27.
