Good. Many businesses should follow this.

White House cancelling subscriptions to Washington Post, New York Times

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham confirmed Tuesday that The New York Times and The Washington Post will soon not be available for reading at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, after President Trump suggested his administration was considering ending its subscriptions to the newspapers.

On Monday, President Trump told Fox News' Sean Hannity, "The New York Times — which is a fake newspaper — we don't even want it in the White House anymore, we're going to probably terminate that and The Washington Post," reiterating, "They're fake."

Politico reached out to the White House for clarification on the president's comments, and Ms. Grisham confirmed to the outlet that President Trump was referring to the termination of the subscriptions, "which we won't be renewing."

Both The Times and The Post declined to comment to Politico.

President Trump has railed against fake news since before taking office, and is a frequent critic of the coverage by many mainstream outlets — often pointing out misreporting. In his interview with Hannity, the president said, "They gave Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong," speaking of New York Times reporters.

Earlier this year, President Trump tweeted, "So funny that The New York Times & The Washington Post got a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage (100 percent NEGATIVE and FAKE!) of Collusion with Russia — And there was No Collusion! So, they were either duped or corrupt? In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!

See President Trump's interview with Sean Hannity in its entirety, below. The president's remarks on the media begin around the 17:50 mark:


Anything else?

Business Insider pointed out that in an Oval Office interview with The New York Times earlier this year, President Trump told the newspaper's top editors, "Everybody thinks The New York Times treats me terribly. Washington Post also, but The New York Times even more so treats me unbelievably terribly. And I think, I honestly believe you lose credibility by that. I don't think I've had a good story in The New York Times."

Keep your friends close. Keep your enemies closer.

Seems like a bad idea.

Man, they are gonna be bummed to lose that $12 a month.

The guy cannot handle criticism of any kind. Simply cannot. He cannot even stomach perceived criticism through objective news articles that don't paint his administration in a good light. Wimpiest, weakest president ever. This whole administration is the biggest group of pussies to ever occupy the White House.

What’s hilarious is that he and his person-over-party-over-country loyalists think this makes him look tough. Even if one had the idiotic idea that these two publications are “the enemy”(They aren't.) or that they're out to get him through fake negative stories (Still aren't.), does anyone think it’s a smart idea to cut himself off from them, so he don’t even know what they publish? That makes you a moron and a terrible strategist, which is par for the course I guess.

I'll never forget the Facebook post I saw with a t-shirt that said "Trump: Finally a president with balls". It didn't say "balls", but instead had a picture of a dangling nutsack. Where on earth did they ever get the idea he's on the same plant as the word "tough"?

My guess is like a bitter ex that can't/won't stop visiting their former SO's Instagram page, he'll still get a lackey to sneak a few copies into the White House. He can't help himself.

The dude lashed out at Fox News because they published an unfavorable poll.

He cannot properly process any negativity, whether it be opinion or fact.

The only one constantly lying is him.

They don't have a parakeet in a cage, so no need for for the WaPo or NYTimes as a liner.

The Vice President doesn't live in the White House.
Nice try at insulting the Vice President of the United States.
Oh wait, it was a miserable failure on your part.
Think harder.
