The California News Publishers Association is asking Governor Newsom to prioritize journalists for the COVID-19 vaccine.
A bill that would have protected journalists assigned to cover protests was rejected by California’s governor after intense pressure from police.
A media advocacy group has sent a letter to California Gov. Gavin Newsom urging him to address a rapid increase in coronavirus infections at San Quentin state prison.
News organizations across the country have stopped using California-based freelance writers shortly before “gig economy” measure Assembly Bill 5 is expected to take effect.
Gavin Newsom vetoed a measure last weekend that would have required local governments to preserve copies of emails under the state’s public records law.
The new law allows members of the public to sidestep costly duplication fees by making copies of public records with their camera phones.
