The important dimension of this letter is that it goes beyond asking for freedom of thought and points out that this revolution is being accomplished by treachery and harassment, while the adults in the room break their promises.

Stinging resignation letter from alleging bullying, editorial orthodoxy etc
In 1896, Adolph Ochs wrote he wanted "to invite intelligent discussion from all shades of opinion” to make the New York Times "a forum for the consideration of all questions of public importance". resigned today as it is no longer that paper
“Instead, a new consensus has emerged in the press, but perhaps especially at this paper: that truth isn’t a process of collective discovery, but an orthodoxy already known to an enlightened few whose job is to inform everyone else.”
