White House No Longer Subscribes to Washington Post or New York Times

The White House cut its ties to two well-known newspapers.

The White House canceled their subscriptions with The New York Times and The Washington Post, though there’s still access to the online version of the Post.

As a senior reporter at Bloomberg noted, “Some aides [are] privately expressing regret” but they don’t believe the end of the subscription will halt the president’s reading of the newspapers.

The Times’ Chief White House Correspondent Peter Baker, however, declared that this is “not the first” time this has happened.

He made known in a tweet that former President John F. Kennedy was “angry” with the New York Herald Tribune, then ending the White House’s subscriptions to the newspaper, which was later restored. The Tribune is no longer a newspaper.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham made the announcement of canceling the two newspaper subscriptions on Tuesday, as she told The Hill.

The announcement came after President Donald Trump called the Times a “fake newspaper,” he said during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity.

“We don’t even want it in the White House anymore,” Trump said, adding, “We’re going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post. They’re fake.”

Additionally, the White House is expected to tell federal agencies to cut ties with the Times and Post, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Grisham told The Wall Street Journal, “Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving—hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved.”

    The last July 4th shingdig would have paid for a few decades of information.

  3. “The White House canceled their subscriptions with The New York Times and The Washington Post” Article

    …because they couldn’t find anyone in the White House who knows how to read.
