The White House is sharing a doctored video of yesterday‘s press conference as part of its justification for blocking Jim Acosta‘s access. The President of the United States called a journalist a “rude, terrible person.”

Art and life are intertwined as one imitates the other, and while books are an important escape, let‘s never forget their warnings and lessons as we watch injustice happening in our world.
