Riss, the managing editor of Charlie Hebdo, was shot on January 7, 2015 when terrorists killed 9 of his colleagues during an attack on the Charlie Hebdo offices. This month, he visited the Newseum and, following his visit, wrote an editorial on the importance of celebrating and honoring free expression. This editorial is a powerful reminder of our mission to promote, explain and defend the First Amendment. Riss's July 12th editorial, "A Paper Democracy," can be found on the Charlie Hebdo website.
