USA TODAY wins FBI subpoena over press freedom


0

The past year has seen some extraordinary American news reporting – touching accounts of death and dying In the COVID-19 wards of the hospital During the darkest hours of a pandemic, spotlighting the press about the inner workings from the plague.

Elsewhere, there have been tireless investigations into dozens of fake news sites (outside Macedonia, of all places) used to distort voter perceptions in the 2016 election. Other journalists have unveiled a heart-wrenching audio recording of immigrant children crying as they were picked up from their parents at the border, or delving into the source obtained Donald Trump’s financial documents that showed How he paid only $750 in federal taxes in 2016 and 2017.

Journalists in a free society do not have subpoena power to obtain this type of sensitive material. Nor can they enter hospital wards to observe the most intimate moments of human struggle. Their success depends on a delicate interaction of trust and professional integrity at both ends of the news process: from gathering information from hesitant sources, to informing the sometimes skeptical audience.
