White House won’t renew New York Times, Washington Post subscriptions
2019-10-23
He has the FBI, CIA, NSA, and more reporting to him directly. Why would he be interested in getting the same information after the leaks were filtered through the unedited fingers of hysterical but lyrical hacks?
[NYPOST] Team Trump said Tuesday it would not renew subscriptions to the New York Times

...which still proudly displays Walter Duranty's Pulitzer prize...

or the Washington Post, two papers whose coverage frequently angers the president, who claims they are "fake news."

Trump on Monday told Fox News’ Sean Hannity ‐ a fervent backer of the president ‐ that "we don’t even want it in the White House anymore," referring to the Times.

"We’re going to probably terminate that and the Washington Post," Trump said. "They’re fake."

White House spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham confirmed to Politico that "we won’t be renewing."

Earlier this year in an Oval Office interview with Times news hounds and the paper’s publisher, the president complained that he wasn’t treated fairly.

"Everybody thinks the New York Times treats me terribly. Washington Post also, but the New York Times even more so treats me unbelievably terribly," Trump said.

#11  I think we should run it by Snopes first.

A fair hit, SteveS. Those poor people — they were fine so long as they were doing urban legends, but they just don’t have the mental bandwidth to handle anything more complex.

I dunno, tw. I think we should run it by Snopes first.

And yes, Bee was a perfectly reasonable choice.

#8  You only need one source for the daily talking points issued by the DNC. No need for redundancy.

#7  Mr. President, can you see about removing CNN/MSNBC from the airports as well? Noise pollution.

After 15 seasons of "The Apprentice', the search for interesting stage performers is difficult to shake.
