Trump’s attitude about the free press is downright un-American. He tweets insults at journalists who challenge him:
As newspaper publisher Joseph Pulitzer warned, “Our republic and its press will rise and fall together.” To preserve our democracy, we must preserve the free press.

2. Subscribe to your local paper. Our local journalists need to be supported in order to provide independent coverage. Consider giving a subscription as a holiday gift!
3. Write a letter to the editor of a local paper and ask for independent and rigorous coverage of Trump and his administration.
4. Thank your local paper when they do hold him accountable.
5. Blast Karin’s letter and this post on Facebook and Twitter to inspire your friends to do the same.
