National Columnists Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always held on the fourth Tuesday in June
National Columnists Day was first established to recognize the importance and value of newspaper columnists. However, we also encourage you to give recognition and appreciation to columnists in all forms of media.
In today's world of false news, it is easy to paint all columnist, and journalists for that matter, as creators of news, rather than reporters of the facts. Often, the truth and facts are distorted and altered. It's a sad commentary, as the majority of columnists are honest, hard working, and strive to report the news with actual facts.
So today, please give thanks and appreciation to the many columnists who report to you the truth and what you need to know.
The Origin of National Columnists Day:
The National Society of Newspaper Columnists created National Columnists Day. It was established on April 18th, in memory of the day columnist Ernie Pyle was killed in World War II.
We did not find any documentation confirming this to be a "National" day. We found no congressional records or presidential proclamation.
