Letter: Thanks, Sun, for defending freedom of the press



I want to thank The Westerly Sun for joining the Boston Globe campaign to defend American journalism in the editorial “Hey Mr. Trump, journalists are not the enemy” in the paper on Thursday, Aug. 16, and to pose a question based on a hypothetical situation: Suppose you learn that your son or daughter has been posting nasty messages on social media about a former friend, calling him/her dumb, a loser and a dog. You reprimand and perhaps punish your child. He comes back to you with “If the president of the United States can do it, why can’t I?” How do you respond, especially if you support the president? Just asking.
