An Act of Senseless Hate’ Is AP’s Top Story of 2018

The Free Press WV

It’s been challenging to keep up with the seemingly never-ceasing news cycle of late, but some stories drew more eyes than others in 2018. Since 1936, the Associated Press has conducted an annual poll of US editors and news directors to see which were the top news stories of the past 12 months, and this year’s top pick covered “an act of senseless hate”: the Parkland school shooting. Others that made the list ranged from the political to the environmental. The winners leaned toward US headlines, which, considering those voting are US-based, isn’t too surprising. Though in that very first poll, the top story was an international one: the abdication of Britain’s King Edward VIII. Read on for the AP’s 2018 selections.

  1. Parkland school shooting
  2. Trump-Russia probe
  3. #MeToo movement
  4. Mass shootings
  5. 2018 midterms
  6. US immigration
  7. Brett Kavanaugh hearings
  8. California wildfires
  9. Climate change
  10. Jamal Khashoggi murder

More Than 340 Papers Publish Anti-Trump Editorials

The Free Press WV

The Boston Globe decided it was time for an organized response to President Trump’s attacks on the media as an “enemy of the people”—and hundreds of newspapers responded. At least 343 publications agreed to publish editorials Thursday against what the Globe calls Trump’s “dirty war against the free press,“ reports the Guardian. They include some of America’s biggest newspapers as well as smaller publications nationwide, though the Wall Street Journal is among the holdouts, reports the BBC. A selection:

  • The onslaught from the president is “scary. We’re afraid, for our personal safety and for the future of our country,“ write the editorial boards of the San Jose Mercury News and the East Bay Times. “These attacks on the press are an attack on our nation’s foundation. And we’re angry. Angry that we work so hard to carry out the mission our Founding Fathers envisioned, to provide the free flow of information so critical to a well-functioning democracy, only to be demonized by our president for doing our jobs.“
