No they didn’t

But when college ban speakers, the ban is applauded.

By the same people who claim that this subscription cancellation is in some way an attack on the press.

Which it most definitely is not


An act of the President of the United States toward the press is not really comparable to an act of an administrator at a State owned College or University. Is it unconstutional? Nah.

That’s true

But one of those acts is openly applauded by the very hypocrites who are screeching about this move as though is some sort of attack on the press.

Which it isn’t

Oh like YouTube and Facebook do? And twitter. And instagram. All of which have much larger readership than these failed newspapers.

Which, again, is openly applauded.

Which is actually not even close to what the government has just done. The federal government has not banned nor has it even removed those newspapers from its buildings

It just stopped buying them.





Youtube and Facebook provide their content for free, you can choose to use them if you desire or you can choose not to.

Does Facebook and youtube control you ?

Does wapo control the federal government employees?

Unsubscribing is not banning any content whatsoever. The government is free to support any newspaper it wants.

Dumping one or two is by no means an attack of any sort.

Everyone on the planet can still choose to view their content or not.

Nothing has changed at all. Apart from the income of those newspapers

It is likely the Wapo biggest customer by far, and a “tradition” that likely the last 50 years of presidents have continued..


Only to have it ended by the childish dumpster fire of presidential history , Donald J. Trump..

It actually might make the history books even , mixed in with his other attacks on the press..

Live your life through assumptions and you will assume too much.



I was giving you the benefit of the doubt.
So, can you explain how not buying a newspaper is an attack on free speech?




If I were to trump you, I would ignore your reply, call it an attack then proceed to remove you from my reply list.


So, you are unable to clarify how not buying a newspaper is an attack on free speech?
That's what I thought. Because it isn't.




Sure let's set a precedent as we speak , remove all media that is critical to the current administration that way we are guaranteed only positive press.


The media has not been removed. It's still there and anyone is still free to buy the newspapers.
Try again.

‘Only positive press’ is openly applauded when other media platforms outright ban conservative content

By the very same hypocrites who are calling this an attack on the press.

Which it isn’t.

It isn’t even a ban of any kind whatsoever.
