EC meeting

June 24 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

RESULTS OF THIS MEETING:

The following resolution was passed, as reflected in the June 24, 2017 minutes which were approved in the September 16, 2017 meeting.

RESOLUTION TO OPPOSE F.B.I. PRACTICE
OF AGENTS IMPERSONATING JOURNALISTS

WHEREAS the Federal Bureau of Investigation assigns its agents to pose as journalists in order to catch and punish persons who provide information confidentially to reporters or news outlets, and

WHEREAS this practice makes it difficult for journalists to gain the trust of confidential sources in order to uncover illegal or unethical conduct by government officials and agencies, and

WHEREAS this practice flouts the Constitutional guarantee of an independent Fourth Estate and the democratic principle of the people’s right to know about the workings of government,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Pacific Media Workers Guild (The NewsGuild-CWA Local 39521, AFL-CIO) call on the F.B.I. to cease and desist immediately from the aforesaid misconduct; and that the Guild call on the United States Senate to reject henceforth any F.B.I.-director nominee who does not openly pledge to forbid the F.B.I. and all of its personnel to engage in the aforesaid misconduct.

This Resolution adopted by a vote of the Guild Executive Committee on June 24, 2017.
