The Press is Still Not Our Enemy

Posted on October 12th, 2017 by

In recent days, the President has ramped up his attacks against the press, tweeting that NBC and other news organizations should lose their licenses and saying it was “disgusting” that (in his mind) the press can write whatever it wants.  

It seems like a good time to repost our The Press is Not Our Enemy statement from last spring. You can also visit our Fighting Fake News guide, which provides resources for navigating news sources.

We also recommend reading a piece from Eric Black in today’s MinnPost: Contrary to Trump’s assertions, reporters do not feel ‘able to write whatever they want to write.’
