Feder: WIND’s Amy Jacobson Suing Pritzker Over Ban From Media Briefings – Daily Herald

Veteran Chicago journalist Amy Jacobson and the news station she reports for, Salem Media, filed a federal lawsuit against Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker after he announced Jacobson was no longer allowed at his media briefings. The lawsuit, Salem Media of Illinois, LLC v. Pritzker, was filed in the Northern District of Illinois.

The excerpt below is from an article by Robert Feder that appeared June 1, 2020, on dailyherald.com.

 

Jacobson, who co-hosts mornings with Dan Proft on Salem Media news/talk WIND 560-AM, was barred from attending Pritzker’s news conferences last month after she spoke at a Reopen Illinois rally protesting the governor’s stay-at-home order.

In explaining the ban, Pritzker said Jacobson had forfeited her status as a reporter by “taking an extreme position,” adding: “It’s not the way you act, it’s not the way your colleagues in the media act who are reporters. That is not a reporter. She represents a talk show that has a particular point of view. We allowed her to ask questions because once upon a time she was a reporter. But she proved that she is no longer a reporter.”
