    The Boston Globe has enlisted more than 100 newspapers from across the country to publish editorials fighting back against President Trump’s repeated attacks on the media.

    The Globe has been contacting editorial boards and asking them to publish an editorial on Thursday, CNN reported Saturday.

    "We propose to publish an editorial on August 16 on the dangers of the administration's assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date," The Globe said in its pitch.

    More than 100 newspapers have signed up so far to support this effort.
    So, angered by Trump's charge that it feigns independence while acting as a unified coordinated attack machine, the press responds with a unified coordinated attack on Trump. What a bunch of geniuses.

    This will, I think, further damage their credibility. If Trump really were out to destroy the free press he could hardly do any better than what they are doing to themselves.

    If I don't answer your post it's because you lost the debate.

    If trump stopped saying and doing stupid ****, and if he had not committed crimes and surround himself with criminals the press would not report on them.

    Trump blames the media for reporting the stupid **** he dose.

    No one has done anything to limit the free press. Look...there are 100 newspapers organizing to have an anti-Trump circle jerk. They'll do that instead of doing the thing they need to to fix their public image, which is stop doing such a piss-poor job and finding some integrity and truth back into their rotting profession.

    We have Twitter now. Pretty sure the press has lower public opinion ratings than Trump does.

    Nope...they attack him. Sorry that's hard for you to understand.

    Wonder why these 100 didn't do this with Obama when he attacked the press. Or Bush jr. Or Clinton. Or Bush Sr. etc etc etc. Oh wait...we're just going to ignore those aren't we?
    It's about a little over 8% of all newspapers but you have to start somewhere. Remember, Rome wasn't built in a day.


    IMO, the main reason why Obama, Dubya, Clinton, G.H.W. Bush etc weren't attacked in most cases is that they knew how to play the game with the MSM; true there might have been minor flareups but they were far and few; those that did occur in most cases were not as mean spirited and biting as they are now with the Trump administration plus Trump tends to make it personal as well. Remember, contrary to popular belief, the MSM people happen to be human beings and have feelings to boot. When you constantly take it to a higher level and make it personal its only natural that those whom you heckle are going to snap back at you.
