A democracy needs a free press
To the editor:
Thank you for the editorial “Standing Together.” I, too, stand with the Commercial-News against Mr. Trump’s attacks on journalists. We, as a democracy, need a press free to report on all of the news, not just the news favorable to the current administration.
In a very small way, I ran into much the same thing many years ago when my opinion piece for the Wildcat Weekly was criticized by the administration at the time. In retrospect, it was an unimportant topic, but even at 17, I felt I was being unfairly chastised. I can’t imagine being blasted by the President of the United States for presenting the news fairly and without bias about his administration’s actions.
Again thanks. I stand with you.
