Posted on 08/16/2018 3:46:24 AM PDT by Libloather
More than 300 news publications across the country are joining together to defend the role of a free press and denounce President Trump's ongoing attacks on the news media in coordinated editorials publishing Thursday, according a tally by The Boston Globe.
The project was spearheaded by editorial staff at the Globe, who write, "This relentless assault on the free press has dangerous consequences. We asked editorial boards from around the country liberal and conservative, large and small to join us today to address this fundamental threat in their own words."
Editorials are typically written by opinion writers and are considered separate from organizations' news coverage. NPR, for example, has a separate "opinion" category.

How many of those were investigating the First Felons?
Watched some PMSNBC last night. Oh, they're in full election attack mode alright. I've never seen anything like it. But, that's what socialists do.
Somebody call Mueller!
There’s no proof that the media operates in a bubble of bias and coordinated talking points. Oh wait...
Weren’t all of these journalists attacked by Democrats or progressives? I don’t think any of them were attacked by actual conservatives.
or was the old lady who shook her fist at Acosta that much of a threat?
Hundreds of papers owned by how many companies?
What a pathetic and funny leftist ploy!
Showing how the media is unbiased by being leftist and biased.
The thugs are showing their totalitarian underpinnings,
and they don’t even realize it!
Time to start the giggles and memes.
Personally it’s ‘funny’ when the media gets all butt-hurt when someone who they attacked first responds back at them.
Just a bunch of cry-baby losers. As far as I care to think about them.
I wonder if there is anyone on any editorial staff of any of those newspapers who has even a smidgeon of ability to introspect. The news media has been spinning and outright lying for decades, and now they want us to believe that the man we elected in part to call them out is the problem? On the contrary, shenanigans like what they are pulling today just reconfirm how biased and untrustworthy they are, and how correct Trump is.
For years Limbaugh and others have been talking about Leftist Media coordination.
Best thing that Rush Limbaugh could do is play all the coordinated media echoes tapes that he has devised and collected throughout the years. Play them over and over, and have Fox and others play them too.
Over and over. Each one of the echoes of our leftist totalitarian controlled press.
Play them over and over and laugh at them.
They are pathetic.
Wouldn’t hurt for the White House Press secretary to do a couple of minutes of playing the echoes too.
Yeah! That is their new name....THE ECHOES!!
The Main Stream Media are today known as THE ECHOES!!!
FWIW, I think this may be less about Trump and more about trying to goose circulation figs circling the bowl.
Hundreds of Newspapers! Oh no! That means thousands of readers! This is a disaster.
They do know that no one reads those things other than a few old people?
It’s not the media’s lies, fake news and spin. It’s what they bury that makes them enemies of the people.
How many original, actual facts will the Magpie Press produce?
No, the news coverage sections are also largely opinion pieces as well.
Just wondering....is there a single paper among them that isn’t on the brink of bankruptcy?
Talk about a vast, left wing conspiracy! Will the lemmings follow the lead of the Boston Globe?
Like Communists, the Globe is incapable of acknowledging its failures to follow responsible journalism. Are they unaware that what they produce is propaganda?
If the Boston Globe was a competent, responsible place, they would be repenting of their twisted, biased and warped reporting that has become a constant drumbeat of the Democratic party.
They have nothing to offer except hate, bigotry, and twisted reporting. They are in a tailspin.
..... and the difference from any other day is.....?
‘Greek Chorus’ is actually closer to it. ;-)
