Free Press 

The National Press Club is concerned about recent threats and attacks against journalists at Donald Trump events . . . .”

“‘The United States should be an example for the rest of the world in how we protect the right of journalists to report. As candidates talk about freedom and rights so treasured by Americans, they should underscore that one of the most basic of those rights is the freedom of the press. And they should make sure that right is carried out in practice.’”

—Thomas Burr, president, National Press Club, “National Press Club raises alarm about Trump,” Politico.com, March 14, 2016
Editorial Comment: Make America great.
