Support for Journalists Singled Out by Los Angeles County Sheriff - Los Angeles Press Club

Support for Journalists Singled Out by Los Angeles County Sheriff:

Journalism is not a crime. Our community of journalism associations, media unions and First Amendment advocates stands in solidarity with Los Angeles Times reporter Alene Tchekmedyian and all journalists who are threatened or harassed by law enforcement.

Today, the Los Angeles County Sheriff suggested that Alene is a subject in a criminal investigation into a leaked video showing a deputy kneeling on an inmate’s head. In recent weeks, Alene has reported on claims alleging that the Sheriff obstructed justice and retaliated against whistleblowers who raised concerns about the incident. This escalation comes after a years-long history of the Sheriff harshly criticizing many local journalists just for doing their jobs, including Cerise Castle, Josie Huang, Maya Lau and others.

For over 50 years, the Supreme Court has upheld the First Amendment right to publish information of public concern received by members of the press or public. For the Sheriff to suggest otherwise is an unconscionable attempt to deter the press from exercising its long-established right to report on abuses of power.

We condemn these outrageous attacks on newsgathering, and we remain committed to supporting journalism that reports on the facts without fear or favor.

Discussion on Burnout Among Journalists

Journalism is a demanding and often emotionally draining job that can lead to burnout. Join the Los Angeles Press Club for an online session to discuss the signs of burnout and how to deal with it. LAPC President Lisa Richwine will lead a discussion with Kristin Neubauer, a Reuters television producer who has supported the mental health and wellbeing of journalists as global coordinator of the company's Peer Support Network.

ABOUT KRISTIN: Kristin will discuss her own experience with burnout, provide an overview of scientific research on the topic and take questions from the audience.

Kristin joined Reuters in 2001 as a freelance news producer on the Latin American TV desk. Two years later, she was hired on staff and spent the next 15 years covering Latin America, sometimes in the field, sometimes on the desk, coordinating with the field producers and crews.

In recent years, her focus has shifted to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of her colleagues and journalists in general. Kristin became a Peer Supporter in Reuters Peer Network in 2015. In 2018, she became Global Coordinator of the Peer Network.

Kristin currently lives in Alexandria, Virginia and spends most of her free time horseback riding, sketching, painting and hiking.

When: April 25, 2022, 5 p.m. Pacific Time

BOOKKEEPER AND EXECUTIVE ASSISTANT FOR LOS ANGELES PRESS CLUB


Our current bookkeeper and executive assistant, Bob Ladendorf, is retiring on May 15 so the Los Angeles Press Club is looking for his replacement.

Our bookkeeping is done in QuickBooks, so it is good if you know the system.
Your job will be to maintain our books using the QuickBooks online system. This entails sending out invoices and payment reminders, keeping track of memberships, track entries to our contests and issue payments to vendors, grantees, fellows, scholarships and other expenses.

Other duties include:
• Preparing and sending out membership cards.
• Maintain physical files for personnel, vendors, various tax authorities, various grantee applications, board agendas, minutes etc.
• Assist in the preparation, operation, and return of materials to the office for two major awards shows and their silent auctions -- the SoCal Journalism Awards Gala and the National Arts & Entertainment Journalism Awards Gala.

It is a plus if you are familiar with the world of journalism, including being able to proof read.

This is a part time position and the workload varies from week to week. Currently it averages two days a week and is more work intensive around the awards shows in June and December. It could expand if you are willing to take on further duties.

You will be able to work from home for bookkeeping, but we expect you to come into the office once a week and work alongside our executive director.

If you like flexible work hours and think this is a job for you contact our executive director Diana Ljungaeus at [email protected].

We’d like you to start May 1st to go alongside Bob Ladendorf and learn from him.
Pay depends on your experience, and will be evaluated yearly.

60 Minutes’ Bill Whitaker has been named the Los Angeles Press Club's 2022 Joseph M Quinn Awardee for Lifetime Achievement.

"It's been an honor and great responsibility to have spent the last 40 years as a journalist at CBS News where we've shone a light on voices and stories that otherwise might have gone unheard. I'm grateful to the LA Press Club for including me in this distinguished award that has me joining CBS newsmen Walter Cronkite and Dan Rather." said 60 Minutes correspondent and award recipient Bill Whitaker. "High quality journalism has never been more important and I'm thankful to have the opportunity to continue sharing these stories with the team on 60 Minutes."

"Bill Whitaker has delivered compelling stories from all over the world as well as important reports from the home front," said Los Angeles Press Club President Lisa Richwine. "We are thrilled to honor such an inspiring, versatile journalist. He represents the highest example of our profession."

Whitaker was named a 60 Minutes correspondent in March 2014; the 2021-22 season is his eighth on the broadcast.

Most recently, his coverage tied to the war in Ukraine led him to the heart of Russia's capital abroad - London - to report on mega-rich oligarchs who hide Vladimir Putin’s money abroad and prop up his regime. Ahead of the 2022 midterm elections, Whitaker traveled to Madison, Wisconsin where political battles over the 2020 presidential election, and how it was administered, continue to rage. His investigation into "ghost guns" highlighted the legal purchases of gun parts that criminals are using to make deadly weapons and avoid licenses and background checks. He reported on the race for a vaccine and drugs to combat the coronavirus and the use of artificial intelligence to track the contagion. In 2019, Whitaker got the first television interview with sex assault victim Chanel Miller. Earlier that year he was the first to report on the evidence states were using to sue the makers of generic drugs in what state's attorneys general described as a massive collusion and price-fixing scheme that cost consumers billions.

Whitaker's investigation with the Washington Post into the origins of the opioid crisis has won more awards than any other 60 Minutes work. The first report in the two-part series revealed how the DEA's efforts to curb the epidemic were hampered by a law pushed by drug industry lobbyists. The report was credited with forcing the law's chief sponsor, a congressman, to withdraw his nomination for the Trump Administration's drug czar. The next installment told how the biggest opioid case in U.S. history against one of the world's largest drug distribution companies was settled by the government in a deal that shocked DEA agents. Among the eight awards the reporting won are the DuPont-Columbia University award, the Peabody, an Emmy, and an RTDNA Murrow award.

Full Bio here.

The Lifetime Achievement Award will be presented at the 64th SoCal Journalism Awards Gala on Saturday, June 25th at the Sheraton Universal Hotel.

In addition to honoring Bill Whitaker, a special First Amendment Award will be presented to Law Professor Susan Seager. The President’s Award for Impact on Media, the Bill Rosendahl Public Service Award and The Daniel Pearl Award for Courage and Integrity in Journalism are also part of this evening.

The evening will be dedicated to all journalists in Ukraine and independent journalists in Russia, no longer able to do their jobs.

More than 500 journalists and media executives are expected to attend this prestigious event.

Proceeds from the Gala are the largest source of income for the Los Angeles Press Club a 501(c) 3 that speaks for journalists across all media platforms. All contributions are tax-deductible.

The Los Angeles Press Club's 64th SoCal Journalism Awards Contest will soon consider the exceptional work of journalists in our region. The men and women of your Los Angeles Fire Department have been honored to work with many of this year's contestants, including KTLA 5 News' Photojournalist Phil Ige, who will be considered for his story "Saving Jacob" that highlighted the successful rescue by witnesses, LAFD 9-1-1 dispatchers and responders, of a local teen in cardiac arrest. Most importantly, Phil's well-crafted story (not seen in its entirety here), underscored the importance of calling 9-1-1 promptly, closely following the telecommunicators instructions, as well as the benefit of witness CPR and early civilian access to defibrillators. Thanks Phil, and our best wishes in the competition!

Miss my talk with Los Angeles Press Club? Don’t worry — you can watch a recording of the event! We discussed my book, Just Not That Likable, and the double bind that women face. As I explained at the event, when it comes to leadership, especially in the corporate world and certainly in the political world, women are judged according to a very different standard and held to a different metric when it comes to ‘likability.’ Women are constrained to operate within more narrow emotional channels.
