Trump Represents Clear and Present Danger to Freedom of the Press: New York Times Journalist

And this goes directly, by the way, to why Donald Trump isn't getting the critical coverage he should be getting. He called me at home on April 27th to threaten to sue me. Some of the freelance articles that I have written were lawyered way beyond all reason, out of fear. And I've had two news organizations say, "We can't report that, because we're afraid that Donald Trump will sue us." This is an extraordinary thing for a politician to do. And the Supreme Court in this country has been very clear back to the 19th century that the highest and most protected form of speech is political speech. And this is all about -- falls under the rubric of political speech.

As Donald Trump threatens to sue The New York Times, courageous newspaper officials defend their actions to publish parts of his tax returns.
