November 30, 2012 (Woodland Park, NJ) Jennifer A. Borg Esq., General Counsel and Vice President of North Jersey Media Group (NJMG) introduced “Legally Speaking”, a new blog featured on NorthJersey.com that will discuss access and other issues confronting our reporters including those relating to OPRA (Open Public Records Act) and OPMA (Open Public Meetings Act).
“Investigative reporting has invigorated democracy, keeping citizens engaged through information, and aims to hold government accountable for its actions. Often called the watchdog for public interest, the media skillfully combines First Amendment rights with copyright and defamation laws to educate and uphold the public interest,” said Borg. “This blog will communicate our efforts to champion these rights and uphold these laws.”
The Legal team at NJMG, led by Jennifer A. Borg, defends the work of the dedicated reporters in the NJMG family of daily and weekly newspapers, magazines and websites in support of their responsibility to serve the public and its right to know.
