About National Newspaper Columnists Day
When is National Newspaper Columnists Day? This holiday is always celebrated on the fourth Tuesday in June
National Columnists Day is today. This June holiday 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 columnists, 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.
