Watch What You Think . . .

“A group that defends the rights of journalists said Thursday that a Donald Trump presidency would threaten press freedom not only in the United States but around the world...

“‘Donald Trump, through his words and actions as a candidate for president of the United States, has consistently betrayed First Amendment values,’ said Sandra Mims Rowe, a veteran newspaper editor who is chairwoman of CPJ’s board.

“The Committee to Protect Journalists, a New York-based advocacy group, said it had never before warned of a presidential candidacy, but that the Republican nominee ‘represents a threat to press freedom unknown in modern history.’”
—Tim Johnson, journalist, McClatchy Newspapers, “Trump a threat to press freedom worldwide, watchdog group says,” Oct. 13, 2016
Editorial Comment: We need to see that you think before you think it.
