Hundreds of newspapers across the country published editorials today in defense of a free press.

In response to President Trump’s repeated attacks on the media, most recently calling the media the “enemy of the people,” The Boston Globe’s editorial board led the pack, publishing an editorial under the headline, “Journalists are not the enemy” and putting out a call to other newspapers to address the topic.

… This relentless assault on the free press has dangerous consequences,” the Globe’s editorial board wrote.

More than 350 newspapers are estimated to have answered the call.

“Free press—our protection from tyranny,” wrote the board of the Duluth News Tribune in Minnesota.

“This is a classic ‘moments’ situation in media buying,” said Clint White, president and founder, WiT Media.
