Seventy news outlets have agreed to participate in a national campaign orchestrated by Marjorie Pritchard, the deputy managing editor at the Boston Globe.
The campaign will galvanize opinion writers and editorial boards to unite against President Donald Trump's attacks on the media by educating the public on the dangers of "fake news" and press freedom.
Pritchard's campaign, titled, "We are not the enemy of the people," has called on opinion writers at smaller weekly outlets and larger daily outlets to pen pieces denouncing the president's "dirty war on the free press."
So far, only opinion writers have been called upon. Pritchard said: "Our words will differ. But at least we can agree that such attacks are alarming."
Please join us in standing up for a free press. #EnemyOfNone. https://t.co/Sz8BSHzwiq— marjorie pritchard (@marjorie pritchard)1534038666.0
The Globe called on newspapers to publish the editorials on Aug. 16. According to the AP, dozens of outlets have signed on.
