Overseas Press Club of America Denounces Trump’s Attack on Press as Part of Nationwide Protest
NEW YORK August 16, 2018—The Overseas Press Club of America joined newspapers across the country in publishing statements today condemning President Trump’s assaults on U.S. journalists. The Boston Globe and the American Society of News Editors (ASNE) led the call for joint action to defend a free press.
“This dirty war on the free press must end,” ASNE said in a blog post on Aug. 9. “The slander of ‘fake news’ has become Donald Trump’s most potent tool of abuse and incitement against the First Amendment, labeling journalists the ‘enemy of the American people’ and ‘dangerous and sick.’”
“The Overseas Press Club has a long history of defending the rights of journalists and promoting responsible journalism around the globe,” said Deidre Depke, OPC President. “But the attacks the press has sustained under the Trump administration are a new low in modern American history. It is time for all journalists and all defenders of a free press to simply say, ‘enough.’”
The Overseas Press Club is an international association of journalists based in New York City that works to encourage the highest standards in journalism, to educate the next generation of foreign correspondents and to promote international press freedom and the well-being of colleagues in the field.
