The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press is offering a free online guide that will be helpful to any journalist who works even partly online. That includes pretty much all journalists.
The guide covers many topics: credentials for bloggers; state and federal FOIA rights; libel and SLAPP laws; privacy concerns online; Internet regulation; and more.
The Reporters Committee, founded in 1970, is the premier First Amendment professional group.
