Know the protections extended to you under North Carolina Reporters Shield Laws. Although case law in North Carolina has principally dealt with traditional journalists, the statute’s broad definitions of “journalist” and “news medium” are meant to be inclusive of all individuals and media involved in the distribution of news. Any person who is engaged in the business of gathering, compiling, writing, editing, photographing, recording, or processing information for dissemination via any news medium is considered a journalist under the shield law. N.C. Gen. Stat. § 8-53.11(a)(1).
