Scripps faculty member shares in national research award

INDIANAPOLIS — A member of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism faculty was honored June 26 with a Sigma Delta Chi award in the Research About Journalism category. The awards are presented by the Society of Professional Journalists.

Associate lecturer Nerissa Young was part of a team that produced the study titled “Newspaper Adherence to Media Reporting Guidelines for the Su***de deaths of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain.” The project was published in November by the Journal of the American Medical Association Network Open site. Her colleagues on the project were Drs. John Ackerman, Jeff Bridge and Arielle Sheftall with Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.

Their research examined how well national newspapers followed best practices in reporting the celebrity deaths to present Spade and Bourdain as humans instead of statistics, avoid language and details that contribute to su***de contagion and share resources to help the community recover.

“I hope the exposure this award receives will point news media to the best practices and encourage them to follow the guidelines to reduce the number of deaths from this public health issue,” Young said. “On a personal level, I am thrilled to receive this award that is on par with other national journalism awards — Pulitzer, Peabody, Murrow.”

Prominent veteran journalists, who served as SDX Awards judges, selected 79 honorees from nearly 1,200 submissions.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the in-person SDX Awards banquet was canceled. Winners were announced and recognized during a virtual presentation June 26, which is archived online. CNN Political Correspondent Abby Phillip hosted the event.

“All across the country there are stories that are unfolding every day and being told in more ways than ever before,” Phillip said during the event. “And I am in awe of you, my colleagues, for the work that you do to shine light on the human experience and hold our institutions accountable.”

Dating back to 1932, the awards originally honored six individuals for contributions to journalism. The current program began in 1939, when the Society granted the first Distinguished Service Awards. The honors later became the Sigma Delta Chi Awards.

Entries included submissions from television and radio broadcasts, newspapers, online news outlets and magazines, fact-checking, 360 video and data visualization.

SPJ promotes the free flow of information vital to informing citizens; works to inspire and educate the next generation of journalists; and fights to protect First Amendment guarantees of freedom of speech and press.

Journalism faculty condemn violence against reporters covering anti-racism protests (updated 6/11/2020)

As protests against police brutality and institutional racism are increasing following the murders of George Floyd and other unarmed people of color in recent years, so are the violent attacks against journalists who have been assigned to cover those protests. The E. W. Scripps School of Journalism strongly condemns the violent efforts by police to intimidate and prevent journalists from fulfilling their critical role in our democracy.
The U.S. Freedom Tracker has documented at least 208 assaults on journalists between May 28th and June 6th
--173 of those attacks were by police. News crews have been pepper sprayed, tear gassed and struck by batons and rubber bullets, resulting in serious injuries and damaged equipment. More than 50 journalists have been arrested on no legitimate grounds—some during live coverage of the protests.
U.S. journalists being attacked while covering protests is not new. Recent examples of such violence against the news media occurred during the 2011 Occupy Wall Street movement, the 2016 Standing Rock protests, the 2014 Ferguson protests and at President Trump’s inauguration in early 2017. What makes the recent, and ongoing, violent attacks on the media different is the deliberate targeting of journalists by law enforcement officers even after journalists identified themselves as being members of the press and fulfilling their professional, constitutionally protected activities.
Police violence against journalists is the hallmark of brutal dictatorships and corrupt regimes. We recognize that the recent police attacks targeted at journalists are the actions of a small subset of rogue officers, and that the majority of police officers neither condone nor participate in such un-American behavior by their colleagues. But lack of disciplinary action and criminal prosecution against such rogue officers is not acceptable. U.S. police officers who do not swiftly and openly condemn attacks on journalists are complicit in the corruption and enable even more criminal brutality.
Our alumni and interns are working in cities where these protests are most visible, and as such, we are mindful of their safety while they provide the reporting and analysis our nation needs to remain a pluralistic democracy. We put our trust and support in the work we trained our students and graduates to do. The E. W. Scripps School of Journalism remains committed to training our future journalists to stay true to the E. W. Scripps Company’s motto since 1923: “Give light and the people will find their own way.” We expect that the government, especially those entrusted to enforce the law, should do nothing less than protect the First Amendment right for all journalists to do their jobs.

Dr. Ralph Izard, former director of the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism, died on Sept. 3 at his home in Athens after a long battle with prostate cancer. He was 81. A memorial service will be scheduled at a suitable time. Ralph was a much-loved professor, colleague and champion of journalism education and remained a strong supporter of the School of Journalism long after his retirement in 1998. In 2018 Riz edited "The Scripps School," an anecdotal history of the J-School in preparation for our centennial celebration in 2023 (https://www.ohio.edu/scripps-college/journalism/about/giving). As recently retired director Bob Stewart and I have said numerous times, Ralph Izard was a major reason why we both came to Ohio University. His death marks the end of an era in the E. W. Scripps School of Journalism. My heart is breaking. You may recall that Dr. Izard’s wife, Janet, passed away not long ago (January 25, 2020). The E. W. Scripps School of Journalism faculty, students and alumni express our deepest sympathy to Dr. Izard’s daughter Martha.
