The governing board of The Deadline Club voted in its board meeting tonight to support and publish the following statement by SPJ President Sonny Albarado.
The Deadline Club is heartened to learn that the NYPD has returned the photo equipment and press credentials of New York Times freelance photographer Robert Stolarik, who was arrested Aug. 4, 2012, while photographing a disturbance in the Bronx.
On Aug. 9, the Club added its voice to those urging the NYPD to return Stolarik’s property and rigorously review the circumstances of his arrest with an eye toward dismissal of all charges. The return of Stolarik’s photo equipment on Aug. 10 and his credentials on Aug. 23 means he can fully return to work. However, the charges against him are still pending.
The Deadline Club has also renewed its request to the NYPD for a meeting with Commissioner Raymond W. Kelly to review measures that Deadline Club officers discussed with him in March to avert confrontations like Stolarik’s, to ensure that officers in the ranks have been properly instructed to respect First Amendment press rights, and to give journalists maximum flexibility in covering the news in public spaces.

Tina Brown, the editor of both Newsweek and The Daily Beast, was the guest speaker at The Deadline Club Annual Awards Dinner in 2011. She was the subject of a lively interview with Keith Kelly, the Media Ink columnist of The New York Post. This was the first year that the club hosted a Q&A with a newsmaker rather than holding a keynote speech, and the audience was enthusiastic about the new format.
The Deadline Club recently hosted a panel about the benefits and risks of using Twitter at the New York Newspaper Guild. The five panelists, including social media editors and experts, answered questions from a crowd of around 70 journalists. Armed with the hashtag #deadline, individuals from Los Angeles to London followed along via – what else? – Twitter.
