Colombian president responds to journalists who say he stigmatizes them

"Colombian President Gustavo Petro responded on Monday [July 8] to a letter from more than 180 journalists published in the opinion column of journalist Laura Ardila in El Espectador. Although they recognize the need for a debate on the quality of journalism, the journalists also say that the president's accusations stigmatize them.
