On Monday, June 3, 2019, no newspapers were displayed in the Today’s Front Pages exhibit outside the Newseum on Pennsylvania Avenue, inside the Newseum or online at newseum.org. In their place were blacked-out pages featuring the hashtag #WithoutNews. The newspaper blackout marked the Newseum’s fifth annual #WithoutNews campaign, meant to raise awareness of the threats to journalists around the world.

On the same day, the museum rededicated its Journalists Memorial, which recognizes journalists who died or were killed in the pursuit of news. At a 10 a.m. ceremony, the names of 21 journalists selected to represent all journalists who died covering the news in 2018 were added to the 2,323 names on the memorial.
