Shane Vander Hart: A free press is vital to our Republic, and President Trump should not interfere with it, but a free press should police itself to ensure that it is fair. It should report the truth, the whole truth – the good and the bad – not just the stories about the Trump Administration they want to cover.

Attorney General Eric Holder and the U.S. Department of Justice’s actions toward members of the media have a chilling effect on the freedom of the press.
