Trump tweets about the media in wake of #freepress push

Boston Globe Organizes Response To Trump's Attack On Media Hundreds Of Newspapers Are Challenging Trump's Attacks: 'We Are Not The Enemy’

The Boston Globe and the New York Times took part in the push along with more than 350 other newspapers of all sizes including some in states that Trump won during the 2016 presidential election.

Trump has frequently criticized journalists and described news reports that contradict his opinion or policy positions as fake news.

There is nothing that I would want more for our Country than true FREEDOM OF THE PRESS. "They are very unsafe & sick!"

"THE FAKE NEWS MEDIA IS THE OPPOSITION PARTY", Trump wrote on Twitter.

The Globe also argued that Trump's treatment of the press was encouraging authoritarian leaders such as Russia's Vladimir Putin and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan to suppress free journalism.

You can find our editorial on the issue on Page A8 of today's newspaper. In the piece, the editorial board wrote that the liberty of the press has been a foundational American principle for more than two centuries.

In its editorial, the New York Times said it was correct to criticize the news media for underplaying or overplaying stories or for getting something wrong.

The First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution guarantees freedom of the press.

In St Louis, the Post-Dispatch called journalists "the truest of patriots", while the Chicago Sun-Times said it believes most Americans know Mr Trump is talking nonsense. 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. On Thursday, hundreds of news outlets answered a call from The Boston Globe to join forces and reaffirm the importance of the Fourth Estate. The paper also quoted the United Nations high commissioner for human rights who said on Monday that Trump's anti-press statements are "close" to inciting violence against journalists. Some newspapers, including the Wall Street Journal and the San Francisco Chronicle, wrote editorials explaining why they weren't joining the Globe's effort.

Freeman wrote that the president has the right to free speech as much as his media adversaries.
