USA newspapers to Trump: We're not enemies of the people

You've heard President Trump use the term "fake news" when describing the work of the capitol press corps.
Hundreds of US newspapers have run editorials denouncing US President Donald Trump's attacks on media, in a coordinated effort to promote press freedom.
"I don't think the press can just sit back and take it, they need to make their case when the most powerful man in the world tries to undercut the First Amendment", said Ken Paulson, a former editor-in-chief of USA Today who heads the Newseum's First Amendment Center and is dean of communications at Middle Tennessee State University. In February 2017, shortly after he came into office, Trump banned reporters from CNN, the BBC, and the Guardian from an off-camera press briefing. Criticizing the news media - for underplaying or overplaying stories, for getting something wrong - is entirely right.
He explained there is nothing more he wants than true freedom of the press, and pointed out the media is free to write and say whatever it wants. "I truly believe that America always solves its problems and combating unsafe and irresponsible attacks on journalism is no exception", Schumer said in a statement.
The Globequoted its local founding father John Adams, who was born and died in MA and became America's second president and said: "The liberty of the press is essential to the security of freedom".
The San Francisco Chronicle said it would not join the effort because "it plays into Trump's narrative that the media are aligned against him". "Correcting them is core to our job", it said. "These attacks on the press are an attack on our nation's foundation".
"It's not that we disagree with concerns about the president's language in speeches and on social media", the editorial board said.
"We're just not coordinating with other news organizations because the president's opinion, frankly, is just not that important to us".
"It will provide Trump with circumstantial evidence of the existence of a national press cabal that has been convened exclusively to oppose him", Shafer said.
Sanders said at the briefing, "This president since he took office created 700,000 new jobs for African-Americans". Then, Sanders went on to argue that Trump has created more jobs for black Americans than Obama did.
