Congressional resolution honors Capitol riot journalists.

Representative Cheri Bustos, a Democrat from Illinois and herself a former reporter, introduced the resolution last week, saying, “It was our nation’s forefathers who first recognized that the foundation of a successful democracy must include a free press.” She went on to laud the intrepid journalists who covered the events of January 6, saying, “Despite threats to their own lives, they continued to document history. Their work helped ensure the safety of others and continues to help federal agencies seek justice. Their actions were nothing short of heroic.”
