Following Supreme Court ruling, American Public Media recognizes necessity and support of free press in full-page New York Times ad
With a full-page advertisement appearing in this Sunday’s issue of The New York Times, American Public Media (APM) will highlight the important work of the free press and thank those who support journalism locally and worldwide.
The ad comes after a U.S. Supreme Court ruling in the case of Flowers v. Mississippi. APM’s investigative group, APM Reports, reported on the Flowers case for more than a year in Mississippi for the acclaimed podcast In the Dark and – among many revelations – uncovered the district attorney’s past and present practice of racial discrimination in jury selection.
The court reversed Flowers’ conviction on Friday, ruling that the prosecutor used racial discrimination in the jury selection for Flowers’ most recent trial.
Key findings from the APM Reports’ investigation were included in the case presented to the Supreme Court.
