Actress Rose McGowan, who has been an active anti-Donald Trump voice, wrote an open letter addressed to the media Wednesday. This follows an open letter she wrote to a Trump supporter. In her most recent note, she holds the media accountable for its role in supporting the rise of Trump.

You who have been stressing me and most of the nation out to the point of a diagnosable sickness. WE ARE BEING POISONED. We, the public, are being sickened by an ever expanding assault on our right to live a healthy and free life. Donald & you ratings driven colluders, are holding us the public hostage and exposing us to disease. A massive DISease.

She also offers a simple solution: Stop covering him.

We, the public, need for you to look for your humanity. We, the public, need you to think differently and to do better. Think different. Do better. It’s that easy to be a better person and to do the right thing no matter the cost. The time is now.
