Hundreds Of Newspapers Are Challenging Trump's Attacks: 'We Are Not The Enemy’

Campaign The New York Times editorial US papers hit back at ‘fake news’ jibes by Joel Taylor Published

There is nothing that I would want more for our Country than true FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. They purposely cause great division & distrust.

The president even admitted in a tweet in May 2018 that he considered any negative news regarding his person or administration "fake news".

Scroll down to see a sampling of the editorials published today.

"This relentless assault on the free press has risky consequences", the Boston Globe wrote. "These attacks on the press are an attack on our nation's foundation".

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of the press. "To label the press "the enemy of the people" is as un-American as it is risky to the civic compact we have shared for more than two centuries".

Chicago Sun-Times: The daily newspaper said they were confident Americans know that Trump is wrong in calling journalists the "enemy of the people".

"And calling journalists the "enemy of the people" is risky, period", The New York Times editorial board wrote. Rather, the paper claims its staff are pretty fond of "the people" and are instead enemies of "unchecked authority", "undeserved privilege", and "self-entitlement" to name a few. The theme was consistent, with more than 350 news organizations, both large and small, banding together to defend the press against denigrations of "fake news".

On Thursday, editorial boards of about 300 newspapers are coordinating to criticize President Trump's war with the media in editorials written and published at each paper under the unifying theme, #FreePress.

The Orlando Sentinel: In its editorial titled "President Trump, the press isn't the "enemy" - it's America's watchdog", the paper writes that the president is putting journalists in danger and references the shooting of five people at the Capital Gazette newspaper in Maryland in June. Some newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal and the San Francisco Chronicle, wrote editorials explaining why they weren't joining the Globe's effort.

"The fact is that the Press is FREE to write and say anything it wants, but much of what it says is FAKE NEWS, pushing a political agenda or just plain trying to hurt people", Trump tweeted.
