NEWSGATHERING IN MASSACHUSETTS: An Overview of Legal Protections for Reporters Collecting Facts and Gathering Information in the Commonwealth | White Paper | May 4, 2013 | The Cyberlaw Clinic and Digital Media Law Project released this white paper to coincide with the celebration of Cambridge Community Television’s 25th anniversary and CCTV’s “Filling the News Gap” event. The paper highlights several categories of laws relevant to independent journalists and newsgatherers in the Commonwealth, including state statutes governing open meetings and public records, revisions to Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court Rule 1:19 (which concerns the recording of court proceedings), and federal caselaw interpreting the state wiretap statute as it applies to recording of public officials in public places.
