By The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board

Weeks before Donald J. Trump reached his first hundred days in office, the Los Angeles Times’s Editorial Board published the first of six consecutive denunciations calling him “Our Dishonest President.” The paper’s condemnation of Trump’s lies, his authoritarian temperament, his war on journalism, and his obsession with conspiracies was as bold as it was unprecedented, as was its call to Californians to oppose the brazen acts of a man patently unfit to preside over the republic. It prompted a tremendous response: within days, the series garnered seven million page views.

Just in time for Independence Day, Heyday is proud to present a paperback of the six editorials, brought up to date with an introduction by Davan Maharaj, the Times’s publisher and editor-in-chief, and by Nicholas Goldberg, the paper’s editor of the editorial pages. When read in sequence the arguments gain force and momentum, delivering a formidable and indispensable critique by one of America’s most important newspapers.

About the Author

The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board

The Los Angeles Times Editorial Board

Founded in 1881, the Los Angeles Times is the largest news-gathering organization west of the Mississippi. Now read by more than 50 million unique visitors monthly, The Times’ journalism has won forty-four Pulitzer Prizes, six of which were gold medals for public service. The editorials collected in this book are the work of The Times’ editorial board, which is responsible for determining the positions of the paper on the important issues of the day. Unlike articles written by the paper’s reporters in its news pages, editorials are works of opinion. They are unsigned because they represent the consensus of the board. The opinions expressed in these editorials were reached through a process of discussion and deliberation by editorial writers Kerry Cavanaugh, Mariel Garza, Robert Greene, Carla Hall, Karin Klein, Scott Martelle, and Michael McGough, working with editorial page editor Nicholas Goldberg and deputy editor Jon Healey.
