Protect Journalists: Montana congressional candidate Greg Gianforte charged with assault of journalist

Beyond Trump's violent and divisive language targeted at the media, a new normal is being created that makes it ok to violate the rights of individuals who are not loyal to the Trump view of the world - including journalists.  Now, more than ever, the concept of protecting journalists has become even more important.  Now, more than ever, protecting journalists has become even more important. 

Reporters are placing themselves in harms way to report on the truth, and on the attrocities being perpetrated by Trump loyalists.  It sounds like I am talking about foreign correspondents reporting from war zones abroad - while they are reporting from war zones, they are doing so domestically.    They are being verbally abused, and now physically attacked.


Let's work to keep the truth front and center.  Real news by real journalists can help keep the truth visible, keeping the rest of us safe.  If we are not vigilant, we will be contributing to creating a voiceless society.
