“Society of Professional Journalists” Scolds Trump After He Rips NBC Reporter

The “society of professional journalists” which describes themselves as “the oldest, most broad-based journalism organization dedicated to improving journalism” rushed to the defense of NBC’s Peter Alexander and scolded Trump after their contentious exchange.

The group tweeted:

This treatment of journalists by the POTUS must stop. @PeterAlexander asked an appropriate question. No journalist should be treated in this manner for simply trying to do their job. #journalismmatters

Peter Alexander tweeted about the incident:

I offered both Pres Trump and VP Pence an opportunity to reassure Americans.

Simple question: “What do you say to Americans who are scared?”

Trump, to me: “I say, you’re a terrible reporter.”

Pence, an hour later: “Don’t be afraid. Be vigilant.”
