Meet the Author

CHARLES J. GLASSER, Jr. has spent the majority of his life in the news industry, as a journalist and media lawyer. Glasser began his love affair with journalism as a stringer for United Press International attending the 1972 Democratic and Republication National Conventions while in high school. Through the 1980s, Glasser then became a staffer at several daily newspapers and international wire services, where he covered the civil wars in El Salvador, insurgency in Nicaragua, and enterprise stories out of England, India, Cuba, Haiti and elsewhere. While in law school at NYU, he worked in the Legal Department of NBC News in New York, and was honored at graduation in 1996 with the Arthur T. Vanderbilt Medal for his contribution to the legal community. As a lawyer, Charles Glasser has worked in Portland, Maine, representing the Portland Press Herald, Reader's Digest, and several local broadcasters in First Amendment and freedom of information issues. He returned to New York, in 1998, where as a litigation associate at Squadron Ellenoff, he defended several nationally known publications and broadcasters. In 2000, he joined Willkie Farr & Gallagher as a Senior Associate representing Bloomberg News. He joined Bloomberg in-house as Global Media Counsel, in 2002, where he is responsible for pre-publication review, ombudsman issues, ethics inquiries, newsroom litigation and libel training for more than 2,000 reporters in 120 bureaus around the world.
