The Right to Gather News: The Gannett Connection.
Dyer, Carolyn Stewart; Soloski, John
As part of an examination of whether newspaper chains help member papers with legal problems, this paper reviews a series of courtroom and court-record access cases involving the largest newspaper chain in the United States, the Gannett Company. The paper attempts to determine the extent to which Gannett has financially and legally helped its member papers bring law suits involving freedom of the press issues, whether the cases discussed represent a Gannett policy concerning the seeking of access to courtrooms and court records, what the nature and purpose of that policy are, its consequences for the development of mass media law, and the potential benefits to Gannett.
