He hasn't banned the papers. They will still
be available online and in print everywhere.

If you like their reporting, buy a subscription.

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.


Why should the tax payer be forced to subsidize the purchase of these papers for government employees? Why cant those people in government just buy them, you know, like the rest of us? I know, radical idea.

Great idea to save money and trees. Local paper going under they now only print 5 days a week and them mail it to you. If you want the electronic edition you HAVE TO TAKE the printed one.

Stupid business model.

Doesnt the va run hospitals? Doesnt the social security have widows with children applying for benefits?
I kind of sounds like at least some here think that this goes for all agencies and it's kind of hard for me to think that their isnt kids sitting in their waiting rooms.


how many widoed children do you know that read NYT or WSJ??

asking for a 13 year old with a stock portfolio....

Really, because before it seemed like you were talking about all subscriptions. Now, we are picking and choosing? Based on what? The fact that trump doesnt like the coverage some are giving?
Then the reason isnt to save money but to try to control what other people are reading and hurt those businesses that he doesnt like.

as far as I can tell it is all of them, I was using those two as an example.

I don't know if they have childrens publications for the VA, I will look next week when I go to the VA aand report back.

the SSA office where I live is quite small, like 10 feet by 20 feet.

it only has 7 chairs to sit on, and the tables are used for filling out forms, no papers other than SSA information..

As far as I am concerned, they should cancel all of the newspapers going to the Whitehouse and congress. They can put paper machines into the lobbies and the congressmen or other people can buy their own instead of the taxpayer paying for them. I would bet half of the papers just go in the trash, our government should not be paying for any of them to give out free to anyone.

All Federal employee's are free to buy any news paper they want to read.


You know that is fine and true, as long as some others are not cherry picked by their obedience to be paid for by taxpayers. As I understand it, it works like the Drs office, they have subs to many different mags and papers for a choice and variety of information for their patrons.

How does wearing a patch on your arm to ID you hurt anyone's freedom.

“Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving - hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved."


Really.

That's a good move.

All they have to do is turn to MSNBC to see what he's doing.

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


You keep saying this, the same People? Who can you show this correlation?

Not the point. The point is that some seem to be thinking it's all subscriptions across all agencies, to save money, which causes me consider why it might be beneficial for some agencies to be buying the subscriptions to begin with... which led me to think about the hours I've spent in the dmv waiting with nothing to do.. others seem to be saying that the motive is quite different... and the article linked to in the op only talks about a few publications.. in which case the motive isnt to save money but rather an attempt to keep a group of publications, which by the way, trump doesnt like, from being read by people in govt buildings, or at least limit it.

I'm not sure which would be worse waiting forever for some govt employee to notice I had an appointment an hour ago and have nothing to read or being stuck there with just fox news licked on the tv set, christian and alt right literature to read... if you threw in a bunch of bored kids because their magazines weren't found worthy. I would probably decide I didnt need your govt services that badly. If course, by what I understand, I soon wont be able to go into any federal building anyways because I am not gonna sit in the dmv for a half a day to get my real id, it took me several trips and too many hours wasted just to get my drivers license changed when we moved here.

I asked how is not buying a newspaper controlling the media Simple, isn’t it?

It is controlling each office it has been banned from throughout the world US Gov.

I would bet the normal way it works is each office orders the news from a list of various sources and it is made available for the People who need to keep up on that news.

To say you cannot include one American publication is control that should not happen.

By the way it is plain silly to keep saying it its about saving money.

Yeah. Without Trump buying newspapers no one has the ability to shell out 2 bucks to buy it on their own.

I totes see the logic.


I guess they will all have time to go out and get their own everything when they come to work in the mornings. Time well spent. Information is vital to most government work.
The point is though they have not stopped buying news they stopped buying one not approved by one 4 year Government employ.

I'm so sorry that your personal convience is disrupted by not spending Tax dollars.

Did you know the libirary is free?? you can go in before going to the DMV and get a book, at no cost to you.

You can take said book to the the DMV and read it. they even have newspapers I hear but I have not red them there.

I know this is not what you want to do, because "reasons" but it's ok, I do not get to watch porn at the DMV either, and my taxes pay to BLOCK porn.

I'm over 18 why can't I watch porn at he DMV on their wifi?? I can at the libirary...

doesn't that seem silly?? yeah I thought so.

Today it is a total waste of government money to pay for any print subscription. Period.


So they pay for non print instead? if there are no paid news who pays the journalists?
This is why there is any news someone does a job someone gets paid.

Who said it was about saving money? It will but the statement said it was about false news, wasn’t that clear from the first post? Did I miss something

Anyway, how is not providing a newspaper controlling the media, how is not supplying a paper to government employees controlling the media.

They can still buy their own paper, it hasn’t been banned from anywhere has it?
Your argument is as ludicrous as suggesting that they banned the paper to save money
No one said that but you, it will save money, obviously but they banned it because it was democratic propaganda

If I am wrong, tell me why because I am at a loss understanding your position
