This event will explore the potential implications for journalists and their confidential sources of ongoing efforts to compel the disclosure of sources of so-called “dark money” in candidate and issue campaigns. Is the push to unmask dark money a threat to anonymous speech in other contexts, and how might the legal standards developed in that context impact the relationships between reporters and their confidential sources?
A question and answer session for both journalists and lawyers will follow a discussion of the issues among:
Floyd Abrams, Senior Counsel, Cahill, Gordon & Reindel, LLP (moderator)
Allen Dickerson, Legal Director, Institute for Free Speech
Paul Ryan, Vice President of Policy & Litigation, Common Cause
David Schulz, Co-Director, MFIA Clinic and Senior Counsel, Ballard Spahr, LLP
