NABJ releases statement on W.E.B. DuBois plenary at the 2017 NABJ Convention & Career Fair

As an organization of professional journalists, NABJ seeks to have candid and frank conversations with newsmakers. For years, the NABJ has invited the White House administration to participate in the annual convention. 

Omarosa Newman, Director of Communications for the White House Office of Public Liaison, was invited as a panelist this year to share her perspective on issues that are critical to our members, and moreover, critical to the communities that we serve. During her time on the panel, she exercised her right to decide which questions she wanted to answer, and which she did not want to answer.

Moderator Ed Gordon asked tough questions and the Q&A quickly became combative. NABJ does not endorse the positions or the discourse by panelists or moderators at its programs.
