  • Journalists react to being called ‘the enemy of the American people’
    President Donald Trump took his press-bashing to a new level on Friday when he called journalists from The New York Times, ABC, CBS, CNN and NBC "the enemy of the American people." The FAKE NEWS media (failing @nytimes, @NBCNews, @ABC, @CBS, @CNN) is not my enemy, it is the enemy of the American People! — […]
  • Here’s The New York Times’ plan for covering the Trump administration
    In the early days of the Trump administration, no news organization has been a bigger target than The New York Times. The Gray Lady has been unsparing in its coverage of President Trump and frequently provoked his ire on Twitter. So, does all that abuse affect the paper's coverage? "I think the answer is no," […]

Wall of Distinction
The Wall of Distinction is where outstanding journalists in Central New York are permanently enshrined.The Syracuse Press Club's Wall of Distinction is located in the theater lobby of the John H. Mulroy Civic Center in downtown Syracuse.
      First proposed by SPC President Jeff Paston, the Wall of Distinction became reality during President Chris Weidman?s administration. In between, President Tracy Carmen appointed Joe Porcello, Bob Greabell, Marilyn Dietz Nicholson, and Paston to a committee to get the project going.
     With help from Onondaga County Executive Nick Pirro, the Wall was placed in the Civic Center building. The first group of inductees was installed on Dec. 4, 2000, formally kicking off the Syracuse Press Club's 50th anniversary observance. In addition to plaques honoring inductees, there is a large plaque commemorating the SPC's 50th anniversary listing the names of the Club's presidents from 1951 to 2001.
     Below are copies of the engraving on the plaques for each inductee. Click on onefor that honoree's bio.  Note we are still in the process of getting this feature up and running on  the new web site.

 

"If none of us ever read a book that was “dangerous,” had a friend who was “different” or joined an organization that advocated “change,” we would all be just the kind of people Joe McCarthy wants. Whose fault is that? Not really [McCarthy’s]. He didn’t create this situation of fear. He merely exploited it, and rather successfully."
--Edward R. Murrow
