Thank You Abby Phillip, Yamiche Alcindor and April Ryan!

Dear Abby Phillip, Yamiche Alcindor and April Ryan,

Thank you for your commitment to honest reporting on the White House. In spite of the verbal abuse and attempts to silence you, you persisted and asked the Trump administration tough questions to hold them accountable.

You confronted Trump on the Mueller investigation, voter suppression in the midterm elections, and challenged his divisive rhetoric and close ties to white nationalism. 

We admire your grit in the face of dismissive and demeaning language, and we appreciate your dedication to keeping the American public informed. 

In solidarity, 

Your Supporters

    Thank you. Truth exists and objective reality exists outside of partisanship and outright lying. If one side says it’s raining and the other side says it’s not, the reporter’s job is not only to look out the window – but to ask the side that did not tell truth why they lied. And to keep poking and prodding until they answer. It’s a dirty, rotten, thankless job but somebody’s got to do it.

    As a journalism grad who has worked in communications for 44 years, I am appalled at this treatment of the press. Stay strong. We need the tough questions asked!!

    I watched the recent press conference and it took a lot out of me to sit and watch a leader -OUR LEADER treat media in general so awful. As a woman of course I have less tolerance and as a Photojournalist, well I didn’t need to be asked twice to say THANK YOU! I’m happy to see something like this as momentum yet it is awful we are even in a position that it is necessary to do so. Thank you ladies for your continued efforts! Best wishes, Erica Benson

    Lisbeth Stephens. Can’t imagine the pressure you are under. Please know that you have our families’ profound gratitude for persisting as journalists. We depended on you. You are our voice and our right to know, a firewall in these sad times.
