The Boston Globe editorial board is calling on editorial boards at other news outlets across the nation to speak up against President Donald Trump‘s attacks on the press.

Per the Associated Press:

[post_ads]‘‘We are not the enemy of the people,’’ said Marjorie Pritchard, deputy managing editor for the editorial page of The Boston Globe, referring to a characterization of journalists that Trump has used in the past. The president, who contends he has largely been covered unfairly by the press, also employs the term ‘‘fake news’’ often when describing the media.

The Globe has reached out to editorial boards nationwide to write and publish editorials on Aug. 16 denouncing what the newspaper called a ‘‘dirty war against the free press.’’

Trump has continued lashing out at the press and the “fake news” being the “enemy of the people” and did not stop even after the publisher of the New York Times met with him to ask him to tamp it down.

Pritchard said “about 70” other news outlets are on board with editorials to run next week.
