SABEW stands with CNN in condemning violence against reporters

Posted By Crystal Beasley

The Society for Advancing Business Editing and Writing (SABEW) stands with member news organization, CNN in condemning President Trump’s tweet encouraging violence against reporters. SABEW’s First Amendment Committee is increasingly concerned about the threats against journalists from public officials and attacks on the media from President Trump.

On Sunday July 2, Trump tweeted an edited video of him tackling and beating up a man with a CNN logo superimposed on his face during a World Wrestling Entertainment match. CNN responded with this statement: “It is a sad day when the President of the United States encourages violence against reporters. We will keep doing our jobs. He should start doing his.” Click here for the full statement.
