Journalist's Guide

your jurisdiction permit access only to those who hold press passes, obtain one; if your area does not have such a system, keep handy a list of government contacts who may facilitate access when news occurs. Meet with your editors and legal advisers to formulate a general plan in the event you are denied access by police or property owners – whether you should leave, or stay and risk arrest or a lawsuit, and upon what factors your decision will depend.
