-Written by Becca Andrews
After the conclusion of the political panel this morning, past APME President Bob Heisse awarded First Amendment protector John Seigenthaler with a President’s Award for all that he has done in journalism and for hosting the conference at his First Amendment Center at Vanderbilt University.
In an impromptu acceptance speech, Seigenthaler emphasized the significance of reporting the news and doing it well.
“It’s a new media, but old values are so damned important,” Seigenthaler said.
