Without a free press, democracy is destroyed (letter)

I was very glad to see Ben Trollinger's letter in the Friday, Aug. 17, Vail Daily ("President Trump, the enemy isn't us"). I am hoping the Vail Daily has joined the hundreds of other newspapers across the country who are speaking out this week against the attacks on the news media in general.

Without a free press, democracy is destroyed. Lies and fear become the driving forces. This is a critical time for citizens to speak up.
