Today’s task is to thank the journalists- the fearless defenders of the First Amendment whom (who? that? Judd or someone else – please correct my grammar…) Mr. Trump has called the “enemy of the people“! We need to show support for reporters and news shows who report the facts and don’t allow the administration to lie to the public. Our democracy depends on it.
Gratitude goes to:
Peter Alexander from NBC News who publicly fact-checked Trump in real time. Peter Alexander, NBC News, 30 Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY 10112
