Over 300 newsrooms around the country joined The Boston Globe to speak out against President Trump's criticism of the media on Thursday.

The Globe's editorial is titled "Journalists Are Not The Enemy."

The Globe writes that "it’s not a coincidence that this president — whose financial affairs are murky and whose suspicious pattern of behavior triggered his own Justice Department to appoint an independent counsel to investigate him — has tried so hard to intimidate journalists who provide independent scrutiny."

Trump responded to the coordinated effort on Twitter:

Guests

John Carroll, WBUR senior news analyst and professor of journalism at Boston University. He tweets @johncarroll_bu.

Paul Pronovost, editor-in-chief of the Cape Cod Times which tweets @capecodtimes.

This segment aired on August 16, 2018.
