U.S. newspapers to Trump: We're not enemies of the people

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. They include some of America's biggest newspapers as well as smaller publications nationwide, though the Wall Street Journal is among the holdouts, reports the BBC. It is very bad for our Great Country.... Now the Globe is in COLLUSION with other papers on free press. "Taking a lead from President Trump, some of our own readers have accused us, too, of publishing 'fake news.' This is not only an incorrect accusation, but insulting to the reporters and editors here who diligently work to report on Attleboro and the area communities - communities they also live in - in an accurate and unbiased manner".

The editorial effort was in response to a request from the The Boston Globe.

Almost 350 news organisations pledged to participate, according to Marjorie Pritchard, op-ed editor at the Globe.

The terms "fake news" and "enemy of the people" have often been used by Trump in connection any critical news reports.

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

"The Boston Globe, which was sold to the the Failing New York Times for 1.3 BILLION DOLLARS (plus 800 million dollars in losses & investment), or 2.1 BILLION DOLLARS, was then sold by the Times for 1 DOLLAR".

The Philadelphia Inquirer: The morning daily wrote that Trump's war on the press is a war on democracy and cited Philadelphia's history as the "birthplace of democracy" and also one of the "birthplaces of a free press" and that it intends to continue that legacy. "Mr. Trump enjoys free speech just as his media adversaries do", the column said.

"I want to make sure that it is positive", said Dan Shelley, the group's executive director.
