The Boston Globe asks newspapers to publish editorials calling for action to protect free press


The Boston Globe is reaching out to editorial boards across the country to propose a coordinated effort focused on the importance of a free and independent press.

The Globe proposes to publish an editorial on Aug. 16 on the dangers of the Trump Administration's assault on the press and ask others to commit to publishing their own editorials on the same date. Publications, whatever their politics, could make a powerful statement by standing together in the common defense of their profession and the vital role it plays in government for and by the people. 

Please email Marjorie Pritchard, deputy editorial page editor at The Globe, at if you'll be participating.
