The Show regularly checks in with Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

President Donald Trump has consistently attacked the press and media during his time in office, using the controversial phrase "enemy of the people" in describing journalists. Last week's Constitution Day provided an opportunity for the press to address how it's a key part of protecting the nation's freedoms.

As part of that, the Arizona Republic printed an exchange that included USA Today Editor-in-Chief Nicole Carroll commenting on the importance of the free press.

Phil Boas, editorial director of the Arizona Republic, joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about it.
