LTE: Independent press pillar of American democracy

To the editor,
Hard-working reporters, editors and journalists seek the truth each day. The press is indispensable to our democracy and serves to keep power in check. The current president has chosen to denigrate this pillar of our democracy with his hateful rants. We Americans must not allow him to demoralize us and make us cynical. Seek the facts. Support and thank the workers who provide them.
