More than 100 American newspapers will protest against Donald Trump's attitude towards the press on Thursday
More than 100 American newspapers will publish an editorial on Thursday.
CNN says they will use them to denounce American President Donald Trump’s criticism of the media. The papers are responding to an appeal by Boston Globe, who want a “coordinated response” to the fact that Donald Trump is calling the press “an enemy of the people” more and more often. 

“On Saturday, we already had more than 100 publications wanting to take part. I imagine that number will probably continue to go up”, says Boston Globe editor Marjorie Pritchard. “We have had a huge response. A few big papers have got involved, but it’s mainly small publications. They are really enthusiastic about opposing Trump’s attack on journalism”. 

Each paper will write their own editorial. “The impact of Trump’s attack on journalism is not viewed the same way in Boise and Boston. The words will be different, but we all agree on the fact that these attacks are worrying”, says Mrs Pritchard. 

President Trump has always criticised journalists, but many newspapers think his attacks have become more serious over the last few weeks. Donald Trump is saying the media is the enemy of the people more and more often. He is giving the press fewer and fewer opportunities to ask questions. On the rare occasions he does appear before the press, he refuses to answer questions from specific journalists.
