According to Trump Twitter Archive the President of the United States via tweets has called the media the Enemy of the People 22 times, Wednesday’s tweet is the first time via tweet that he has singled out a media outlet by name as the “ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE.”
The New York Times editor, A.G. Sulzberger, has responded to President Trump’s continued attacks against the media.
He writes in part, “The phrase “enemy of the people” is not just false, it’s dangerous. It has an ugly history of being wielded by dictators and tyrants who sought to control public information. And it is particularly reckless coming from someone whose office gives him broad powers to fight or imprison the nation’s enemies. As I have repeatedly told President Trump face to face, there are mounting signs that this incendiary rhetoric is encouraging threats and violence against journalists at home and abroad.”
He concludes by writing, “Through 33 presidential administrations, across 167 years, The New York Times has worked to serve the public by fulfilling the fundamental role of the free press. To help people, regardless of their backgrounds or politics, understand their country and the world. To report independently, fairly and accurately. To ask hard questions. To pursue the truth wherever it leads. That will not change.”
