Led by the @bostonglobe, more than 350 newspapers across the country responded to President Trump, with each paper writing its own individual defense of the free press. Here’s some words from the @nytimes, @phillyinquirer, and @topekacapitaljournal.
The New York Times, a frequent target of President Trump's attacks, wrote, “Insisting that Truths you don't like are 'fake news' is dangerous to the lifeblood of democracy. And calling journalists the 'enemy of the people' is dangerous, period."
The @PhillyInquirer wrote,"As the birthplace of our democracy, Philadelphia was also one of the birthplaces of a free press, and the Inquirer, born not long after the country's own birth, proudly continues that legacy."
In Kansas, the @topekacapitaljournal argued, "We're not the enemy of the people. We are the people."
