The Arizona Republic: How do we respond to threats after our endorsement? This is how.

After endorsing a Democrat for president for the first time in their 126-year publication history, The Arizona Republic has gotten a number of threats against their staff, from the reporters who know that this sort of thing comes with the territory to the kids who are selling subscriptions door-to-door who shouldn’t be dragged into editorial matters unless you’re a freakin’ monster. Mi-Ai Parrish, the president of the paper, responds to these threats in this editorial with a reminder that the First Amendment is kinda crazy-important.
