Editorial: Mr. President: We aren’t enemies of the people. We’re a check on government.

Editorial: Mr. President: We aren’t enemies of the people. We’re a check on government.

You may have read that, this week, scores of U.S. newspapers are responding in independently written editorials to President Trump’s many attacks on journalists as enemies — his word — of the American people.

As this became a national news story, we at the Tribune Editorial Board had two choices: We could stay silent and leave you wondering what message to read into that, or we could explain in our own words the dangers the president’s incitement has created. We chose Option 2 even though we generally avoid group editorial efforts.

We haven’t written at length about Trump’s vilification of journalists. Journalism isn’t supposed to be about journalists. But Trump has made us part of news stories so often that we’ll take time to talk with you about that.
