Trump attack on press is 'biggest threat to democracy'

Recently Retired admiral William McRaven, the former commander of the Joint Special Operations Command and later the US Special Operations Command has warned Trump attack on press is 'biggest threat to democracy'

McRaven, himself a journalism graduate of the school, referred to the press as “the single most important institution in this republic” and said: “This may be the most important time for journalism that I have seen in decades. Probably we need you now more than ever before.”

McRaven did not issue a personal criticism of Trump, nor a broader critique of his administration. But he directly referenced “the president” in objecting to Trump’s stated perspective on the US press.

“On February 17, the president said the news media is the enemy of the American people. The news media is the enemy of the American people,” McRaven said
