The so-called "enemy of the American People" has now decided to rally against a common critic: the president. The Guardian reports that more than 100 newspapers have joined the initiative spearheaded by the Boston Globe to publish editorials about President Trump's "assault on the press" this Thursday. On Saturday, the Globe's deputy editorial page editor said that figure likely wouldn't stay put: "I expect that number to grow in the coming days," Marjorie Pritchard told CNN, which reports journalism groups including the American Society of News Editors have been promoting the effort.
Though large papers like the Houston Chronicle and Denver Post are said to be on board, Pritchard added that "the majority are from smaller markets, all enthusiastic about standing up to Trump's assault on journalism."
