STATEMENT BY JANE TILLMAN IRVING, PRESIDENT OF THE NEW YORK PRESS CLUB, ON THE MASSIVE LAYOFFS AT THE NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
7/26/2018

(Irving was interviewed by reporter Mike Sacks on FOX5 News on Monday, July 23, 2018).

The sudden dismissal of more than half of the newsroom staff at the New York Daily News is a great loss for our fellow journalists, our city, and our democracy.

The news media are under fire from so many sources, and those who fail to recognize the danger that poses to our democratic system are not paying attention. The first layer of democracy - that which affects us first and most directly - is at the local level: your subway, your suburb, your school district, your block. The men and women of the Daily News knew how to dig deeply into an issue, and because of that, the paper won two Pulitzer Prizes in recent years for coverage that had a major impact on the people who live and work in this area.

The old economic model that once made this a seven newspaper town is not coming back, but surely a new system can and must be developed that allows these talented news people to keep their jobs and continue performing the vital public service they do so well.

New York journalism has lost a legend and a moral compass with the passing of our friend Gabe Pressman.

A tenacious seeker of the truth, there was no greater defender of the First Amendment than Gabe Pressman. He fought ferociously for journalists' rights. When he delivered his annual Free Press message at the Press Club's Journalism Awards dinner on June 5 (pictured), he was crystal clear: The First Amendment is under attack, and we can't let our guard down. We can't give up. We have to keep fighting for our rights as journalists.

Gabe's contributions to the field of journalism extended far beyond what his viewers saw on television. It was his hard work behind the scenes that kept the cameras rolling when some would have preferred they be turn off; he kept public meetings open, when some would have preferred they be closed.

Gabe was a mentor to countless young (and not-so-young) journalists. A compliment from Gabe meant you had done your job well.

The New York Press Club mourns the loss of our dear friend and colleague Gabe Pressman. Our thoughts are with Vera and Gabe's extended family.
