Drones and Journalism

While the New England First Amendment Coalition does not yet have an official position on drone use, we do believe it is an important technology that could profoundly affect news-gathering and journalism practices. While the prospect of using drones to keep the public better informed is an exciting one, we recognize there are many interests at play, such as the privacy rights of individuals. As regulations and laws pertaining to drone use continue to be debated and revised, we believe the best route to sound policy is transparency. A frank, honest conversation about domestic drone use is in order and we hope the information and forum provided here will help encourage that discussion.
