Welcome to Pressing

A newsletter about press freedom.

Welcome to Pressing, a newsletter about the press freedoms we hold dear and the threats facing journalists across the United States and around the world.

I’m Scott Nover, a freelance reporter covering media and politics. You may have seen my byline in The Atlantic or The Washington Post or another news outlet. Or you may not have. That’s okay too!

This will be a voiced, weekly newsletter — sent out on Tuesday mornings — rounding up the stories you might have missed about press freedom. We’ll discuss media ethics, source protection, government surveillance, information security, anonymous speech, defamation lawsuits, and violence against journalists.

Everyone holds the freedom to publish. Thus, this newsletter is not just for full-time professionals working in the news industry, it’s for everyone. We start next week. Come join me.

Sign up now so you don’t miss the first issue.
