These issues are what we focus on at all levels of government.
Suggested actions this week
In light of Trump’s recent tweet-storms against the media, including disgusting personal attacks against MSNBC hosts and a video in which he seemed to advocate violence against CNN, our free and independent press seems more endangered than ever. There are even reports of journalists receiving threats of physical harm, and as a result some news outlets are increasing staff security. This is definitely not normal.There is no better time to support groups that advocate for a free press and protect and defend journalists. One such group is the Committee to Protect Journalists, an independent, nonprofit organization that promotes press freedom worldwide and defends the right of journalists to report the news without fear of reprisal.
