50. The American Society Of News Editors

50. The American Society Of News Editors

The ASNE was founded in 1922 by Casper Yost who, after reading two articles critical of newspapers in The Atlantic Monthly written by Moorfield Storey and Frederick Lewis Allen, arranged for a small meeting to be held in Chicago where editors discussed actions they could take to advance the news industry.

The organization has continued since then and now includes newspaper editors, wire service editors and those who work in journalism think tanks among other professionals. It also runs projects like the High School Journalism Initiative as well as multiple awards for writing and journalism. Above is a clip from the 2007 ASNE award.
