Santa Barbara Nine get award

By Kevin Roderick
From LAObserved

Nine of the journalists who resigned from the Santa Barbara News-Press rather than go along with the questionable decrees of owner Wendy McCaw will receive an Ethics in Journalism tribute later this month. The Society of Professional Journalists will make a little fuss for them at its national convention in Chicago Aug. 26. Remaining News-Press staffers yesterday filed with the NLRB as a formal step toward forcing a union election at the paper.
