ABC’s Jon Karl closed out This Week with an editorial note that the media would not stop doing its job just because they might upset President Trump.
Karl pointed out that President Trump is not the first president to be upset with the press, pointing to Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Rosevelt as presidents who battled with the media.
“We are not about to stop doing our jobs because yet another president is unhappy with what he reads or hears or sees on TV news,” Karl told the viewing audience. “There is a reason the founders put freedom of the press in the very first amendment to the Constitution.”
Karl went on to say, “As long as American democracy remains healthy, there will be reporters willing to pursue the truth, even if that means incurring the wrath of the most powerful person in the world.”
“A free press isn’t the enemy of America. It’s a big part of what makes America great,” Karl concluded.
