LETTER: Thanks to free press, shameful border policy exposed, ended

To Ozaukee Press;
    The importance of free press was readily seen in the exposure of the sad and cruel results of Trump’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border, which separated young children from their families.  Without the diligent work done by journalists who are free from government control, this shameful practice would not have been exposed or changed.
    Trump’s relationship with Fox News is troublesome, as are his accusations of fake news to describe anything in the news media that he doesn’t like.  
    All dictators control news outlets.  They do this in North Korea and Iran. If he could, Trump would surely do so here. We would see only his narrow and divisive view. That’s what dictators do.
    I take my hat off to all the good, truthful journalists. Thanks to each of you.
 John S. Strauss
Campton Hills, Ill.
