Clay Jones Joins the Counterinsurgency

To counter what it describes as President Donald Trump’s “dirty war against the free press,” The Boston Globe is urging newspapers across the country to take a coordinated stand against his anti-media attacks.

And scores have already answered the call to battle.

On Saturday, Marjorie Pritchard, the Globe’s deputy editorial page editor, told CNN that more than 100 publications – ranging from big city papers to small weeklies – have committed to participate.

Also participating is editorial cartoonist Clay Jones.

I hope, come Thursday, we see more joining.

Sickening how these dying newspapers are trying to resurrect interest in their “progressive” ideas by attacking the president, all on the same day, as if they only now came to the realization that attacking Trump on the same day is a “coordinated effort.” They have all been attacking him since Day 1, which is way before the phrase “Enemy of the people” was rightfully coined.

Hi Jerry, Nice that you could take time out of your busy schedule silencing minorities and freedom of press/speech to post such an inciteful comment. Keep ’em coming. They’re funnier than most comics.

Mr. Zucker seems confused about the concept of collusion. When the effort is in public view with no attempt to conceal it that is called cooperation. When it takes place behind closed doors that is something else entirely.
