About us

The Reporters Committee for
Freedom of the Press:
A short history

The Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press was created in 1970 at a time when the nation's news media faced a wave of government subpoenas asking reporters to name confidential sources.  Today it provides pro bono legal advocacy, resources, and support to protect First Amendment freedoms and the newsgathering rights of journalists.  Funded by corporate, foundation, and individual contributions, the Reporters Committee serves the nation's leading news organizations; thousands of reporters, editors, and media lawyers; and many more who use our online and mobile resources.  For more information, go to www.rcfp.org, or follow us on Twitter@rcfp.
