In a Golden Globes’ speech that is sure to have a lot of people talking, Meryl Streep acknowledged the need to protect journalists. She even cited a group with which I’ve long been involved, the Committee to Protect Journalists. She said:

“We need the principled press, to hold power to account, to call them on the carpet for every outrage. That’s why our Founders enshrine the press and its freedoms in our Constitution. So I only asked the famously well-heeled Hollywood Foreign Press and all of us in our community to join me in supporting the Committee to Protect Journalists, because we’re gonna need them going forward, and they’ll need us to safeguard the truth.”
