Trump brands media ‘opposition party’ after 350 outlets run coordinated editorials resisting ‘assault on free press’

Trump brands media ‘opposition party’ after 350 outlets run coordinated editorials resisting ‘assault on free press’Donald Trump has lashed out at more than 350 newspapers across the US who launched a coordinated defence of press freedom, by calling the media the “opposition party”. The campaign, led by the Boston Globe, came after a number of attacks from the president who has repeatedly labelled journalists “the enemy of the people” and derided much of the media as “fake news”. “A central pillar of President Trump’s politics is a sustained assault on the free press,” said the editorial by the Globe.

Witness to Charlottesville attack sues U.S. media outlets over 'false' storiesA Virginia man sued two media outlets and seven individuals on Tuesday claiming he was defamed by false stories in which he was accused of helping stage unrest last summer in Charlottesville, Virginia, as part of an effort to undermine U.S. President Donald Trump. Brennan Gilmore, 38, said in the lawsuit filed in federal court in Virginia that Alex Jones and his conservative website Infowars published stories that damaged his reputation and led to threats against him, including a letter that contained suspicious powder. Gilmore is seeking monetary damages of more than $75,000.
