But for Donald Trump and his online army of hatemongering, cowardly supporters who bombarded the Gazette with threatening messages of hate after one of its reporters frankly opined that Trump’s phony “thoughts and prayers” were worthless when he’d spent the hours just before these murders gleefully smearing journalists as “enemies of the people,” the paper also had something more to say, before the memory of their friends’ deaths faded into the next news cycle, sure to be dominated by more Tweets from the soulless abomination occupying the Oval Office:
Here’s what else we won’t forget: Death threats and emails from people we don’t know celebrating our loss, or the people who called for one of our reporters to get fired because she got angry and cursed on national television after witnessing her friends getting shot.
We won’t forget being called an enemy of the people.
No, we won’t forget that. Because exposing evil, shining light on wrongs and fighting injustice is what we do.
