RE: “Make no mistake: This attack on our free press — your free press — is deliberate and calculated.” [Editorial, Aug. 15]:
Thank you for your efforts to disseminate the news of the day and resist the hate-filled and deceitful rhetoric of this administration. I cannot believe, still, in this country that it is necessary for the press and regular citizens to defend themselves.
Only one quarter or less of the citizens believe a word Donald Trump says, yet the press is forced to defend itself because his speech is so incendiary.
The press is now officially our last line of defense.
