Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists Mourns Loss Of Chauncey Bailey

For Immediate Release:
8/9/2007


Contact: Linda Jue, President, 4l5-321-1733
Pueng Vongs, Vice President, 4l5-336-5671

The board of the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists was shocked and saddened to learn of the killing of Chauncey Bailey, editor of the Oakland Post. Bailey was a tireless advocate for the African-American community and a passionate investigative journalist. His work will be missed dearly in the Bay Area. We also offer our deepest condolences to Bailey's family, friends and colleagues.

Bailey's death underlines the enormous risks journalists take to seek truth and report it. At least 100 journalists were killed around the world while covering the news the first six months of this year, according to the News Safety Institute. The chapter urges journalists throughout the Bay Area to continue to pursue tough investigative stories in Bailey's memory and in honor of all the courageous journalists who continue to risk their lives around the world.
