You forgot the daily mail.

Also, i'm sure can just use outline to read them if they really want. Who subscribes to newspapers any more anyway?

Forcing the government to supply a news source is. . . ummmm. . . . authoritarian.

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.


Pay for a subscription and it will be delivered to you. Same as before.
I bet if Obama did this you'd all be cheering how he was saving the trees.

Our building cafeteria had a nearly $2 million overhaul and yes it is quite nice. Lots of big screen TV's and the people were watching Fox News. Someone had a hissy fit and turned to cnn then back to Fox then the remotes disappeared. So cnn. a few days later Fox was back. Someone found a way to lock the channels. Next darkness till everyone quit messing with the TV's. Then cnn again then Fox. Now dark screens.
Been of a couple of weeks today one had Fox another cnn. more people were in front of Fox by 3-1 at least.

Stay tuned!!!

That's what dictators do, only positive press is allowed and I'm betting a good contingent of his followers are quite fine with this as they don't support freedom of press let alone freedom for the public.


So when Obama surveilled a Fox News’ reporter, excluded Fox News from interviews, and said FOX's “point of view” was “ultimately destructive” to the U.S. That's ok. He prosecuted wistleblowers and denied FOIA request at the greatest rate of any previous presidency.

Trump cancels news subscriptions and only now you're clutching your pearls?

My personal convenience is disrupted by the hours of waiting in the place... every thing else is secondary.. except the distance to the place... I have health problems that causes me to limit how far I drive and the dmv is out of that range... which is why after the deadline for getting the real id they can kiss my behind if they actually think I'm gonna get one just for the priviledge of entering one of their buildings.

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.


These offices have coffee to, I bet they provide paper and pencils unlike the schools. Maybe they don't need those.

Who said it was about saving money?

Just go back and reread the thread. Clearly many People keep saying just that. You know what I bet you already know that and just wanted something to say.

That would be great, just make sure it is about all publications equally.
Cheering huh? I have lived a long time and through many Presidential employees time in office. I have never cheered any of them or berated their personage either. They are humans doing a job temporarily. The position is what should be respected not the individuals that come and go.

Any Person worship I find repulsive! It is what leads to the disasters that befall the earth but there are to few left that have seen these things most People are clueless.

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.


can you define a Journalists job??

is it to inform the public, or sway the public opinion??

if it's to inform, they are not doing their Jobs, so, why should they be paid??

or do you get paid for not doiing the Job you were hired to do?

Only because so many are highlighting that point..
And, just what is or isnt fake news seems to be rather contested at the moment.
And quite frankly, people who not really that long ago were claiming hillary was dying, a pizza shop with no basement was holding kids in their basement as sex slaves, and the dead children of sandy hook weren't really dead just dont seem to have the qualifications to determine just what fake news is or who is a good journalist.

Reacting to the news, Jonathan Karl, president of the White House Correspondents' Association, said on Thursday, "I have no doubt the hardworking reporters of The New York Times and Washington Post will continue to do quality journalism,

“Quality journalism”

Yeah.

Ok.

You could be correct. I do not know, I was not in ANY of those threads.

but thanks for the info.

ETA: I don't go to the Q threads either, so there is that.
