LISTEN: When Government Says No To The Press

Rio Grande SPJ
A meme created for Sunshine Week by the Society of Professional Journalists, Rio Grande Chapter

You know all those times when the reporter says that the government official, public agency or politician refused to comment? We're digging into issues of press access and government transparency this week and here are some recent KUNM examples. 

It's Sunshine Week on the KUNM Call In Show this Thursday morning at 8 a.m. We’ll be talking about the essential local stories that reporters had to fight to get, and how sunlight is a disinfectant in the dark corners of power.

Email callinshow@kunm.org to let us know if you've had trouble getting information from public officials.
