The Working Press interviewed 20 people Tuesday asking this question. Reactions ranged from “absolutely shocked” to “kind of sad,” but many were completely unaware of its withdrawal:

• Seven people expressed surprise that NABJ had withdrawn from the organization, but they did not know enough about the situation to comment further.

• Nine people declined to comment because of their lack of knowledge.

• One person declined to comment due to a conflict of interest.

Three people shared their thoughts:

    Excellent on all counts – the quality of the candidates, the quick recap for the public, the transparency in the voting process.
