Tomorrow, August 16, 2018, hundreds of newspapers across the country will be uniting in confronting and denouncing Donald Trump's constant assault on the free press. Editorials cartoonists nationwide will be joining in defense of the First Amendment (cartoons have already begun to appear in the above feed.)

Lead by the Boston Globe, over 200 newspapers will be posting editorials on promoting freedom of the press: 

"Some of the most respected and widely circulated newspapers in the country have committed to taking a stand in their editorial pages, including The New York Times, The Dallas Morning News, The Denver Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, and the Chicago Sun-Times. The list ranges from large metropolitan dailies to small weekly papers with circulations as low as 4,000.

"The Globe initiative comes amid the president’s repeated verbal attacks on journalists, calling mainstream press organizations “fake news” and “the enemy of the American people.” Tensions came to a boil in early August when CNN reporter Jim Acosta walked out of a press briefing after White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders refused to refute Trump’s 'enemy of the people' comments."

In a recent column, cartoonist Clay Jones noted: "To me, an enemy of the American people and democracy is one who attacks a free press. A leader who believes an informed public is dangerous is not a leader for a free nation."
