WSJ, WaPo, NYT Run Ad Demanding Reporter’s Release

From a story on by Sara Fischer headlined “WSJ, WaPo, NYT run joint ad demanding reporter’s release”:

The publishers and top editors at the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post and New York Times on Thursday will run a joint letter as a full-page, color advertisement in all three of their papers urging support from the Biden Administration in fighting for the release of Wall Street Journal reporter Evan Gershkovich from a Russian prison.

Why it matters: Gershkovich is being held under espionage charges. The papers’ leaders argue that “his detention is a loss not just for our individual publications but for the people of Russia and society at large.”
