NUJ defends coronavirus whistle-blowers and journalistic sources
The NUJ has condemned threats made to UK key workers over speaking to journalists.
“The public has the right to know what is happening, especially when it relates to the health and well-being of the nation. NHS England should withdraw these threats immediately.
“This current crisis underlines the importance of journalism and the need to ensure that the lockdown is not used as a means of suppressing information, or making it harder for whistleblowers to do the right thing and speak out.”
