Hundreds Of Newspapers Are Challenging Trump's Attacks: 'We Are Not The Enemy’

Last week, The Boston Globe put out a call to action inviting newspapers across the country to join them in publishing editorials to defend journalists against the president's "dirty war". It is very bad for our Great Country....

News organisations across the U.S. have united to condemn Donald Trump's attack on the media. The movement was initially pushed by the Boston Globe.

The Globe's Opinion department, which is separate from its news operations, organized the effort.

In St Louis, the Post-Dispatch called journalists "the truest of patriots", while the Chicago Sun-Times said it believes most Americans know Trump is talking nonsense.

Trump has long rallied against so-called "fake news", branding some of America's largest media outlets, including CNN and The New York Times, as such.

He has also accused the "fake news media" of taking part in a "phony Russian witch hunt" regarding unsubstantiated claims that Trump colluded with Moscow during the 2016 presidential election.

The Philadelphia Inquirer: The morning daily wrote that Trump's war on the press is a war on democracy and cited Philadelphia's history as the "birthplace of democracy" and also one of the "birthplaces of a free press" and that it intends to continue that legacy. "We're all in this together".

The Wall Street Journal: The prominent publication chose to refrain from participating because it said it goes against the independence that editorial boards seek.

"The fact is that the Press is FREE to write and say anything it wants, but much of what it says is FAKE NEWS, pushing a political agenda or just plain trying to hurt people", Trump tweeted.

"I want to make sure that it is positive", said Dan Shelley, the group's executive director.

Scroll down to see a sampling of the editorials published today.
