"Despite his often ferocious takedowns of those he felt had violated the public's trust, his focus was almost always on the sin, not the sinner. And there was always an open door at Barrett's crowded office for those seeking redemption or bearing credible evidence of unreported malfeasance."

Tom Robbins, Investigative Journalist in Residence at the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism remembers his friend and Village Voice colleague Wayne Barrett.

Journalism's credibility is under attack. How do we fight back?

President-elect Donald J. Trump
Trump Tower
New York, NY 10022

January 11, 2017

Dear President-elect Trump,
The New York Press Club strongly disagrees with your refusal to accept questions from CNN's Jim Acosta at today's news conference.

Mr. Acosta is a tenured, highly-respected journalist. CNN has a long and legitimate standing in the journalism community. They deserve to have their questions heard and answered, especially after you singled them out for criticism in your remarks.

Mister President-elect, you are not always going to like or agree with everything that is reported by the news media. But, an integral part of a free and open Press is to field questions from a broad cross-section of journalists, including those with whom you disagree. To shout down a journalist, refuse to take his question and label his news organization as "fake news" serves no good purpose.

The New York Press Club respectfully calls on you to end this practice of exclusion. We urge you to accept and answer questions from all journalists.

Sincerely,

Steve Scott, President
The New York Press Club
