The Boston Globe Calls On All Newspapers: Denounce Trump’s “Dirty War” On The Free Press On August 16th

The Associated Press reports:

A Boston newspaper is calling for a coordinated editorial response to President Donald Trump’s frequent attacks on the news media. The Boston Globe has appealed to newspapers across the U.S. to publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what it calls a “dirty war against the free press.”

The Globe says it’s appealing to editorial boards to take a stand regardless of their politics and whether they generally editorialize for or against the president’s policies. Trump often characterizes the media as “fake news” and journalists as his true political opponents.
