We learned that NH Public Radio reporters and their families have been the victims of vandalism to their homes in New Hampshire and Massachusetts.
These journalists are our colleagues, partners in our collaborative and our friends. They, like the rest of us in the field, do this work as a service to all of our communities. Cowardly acts of vandalism or violence against these or any journalist should not be tolerated by our communities. This should be unacceptable to all of us.
We are appalled at these acts and urge anyone with information to alert the proper authorities to bring the perpetrator to justice.
As for our partners at NHPR, we stand in solidarity with you and your families.
