There is no news media. There’s simply a bunch of people on television and in newspapers who are ranking members of the Democrat Party. – Rush Limbaugh

Retired Army Gen. Barry McCaffrey on Friday compared the Trump administration’s directive to federal agencies to cancel subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post to fascist Italian leader Benito Mussolini.
In a tweet, the former four-star general called the decision a “watershed moment in history.”
“The White House Trump statement telling the entire Federal Government to terminate subscriptions to the NYT and Wash Post is a watershed moment in national history,” McCaffrey said. “No room for HUMOROUS media coverage. This is deadly serious. This is Mussolini.”
On Tuesday, the White House said it would not renew subscriptions to both newspapers a day after Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity that “we don’t even want it in the White House anymore.”
“We’re going to probably terminate that [The Times] and The Washington Post. They’re fake,” he said.
Trump has repeatedly accused both papers — and a number of other media outlets — of unfair coverage.
McCaffrey has criticized Trump on several other occasions. Earlier this year, he warned of Trump pardoning military personnel accused of war crimes, destroying U.S. alliances with Europe, and called him a “serious threat to U.S. national security.”
McCaffrey has also taken issue with disparaging comments made by Trump against former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, whom the president called “the world’s most overrated general.”
President Trump was well within the parameters of his job to decide what our Federal Agencies spend taxpayer money on.
Please explain to me why the agencies who are a part of his Administration simply MUST subscribe to the New York Times and the Washington Post, two newspapers who have devolved into nothing more than Propaganda Arms of the Democratic Party, attacking President Trump and his Administration in numerous articles every single day.
You would have thought that the Main Stream Media in general would have figured out that Trump is not like any other Republican President in recent memory.
HE FIGHTS BACK.
First he stopped the Daily Press Briefings because Acosta and his fellow members of the Hive-Mind had turned what used to be an informative meeting into a circus sideshow designed to attack both the President and His Press Secretary, while the reporters made themselves the focus of the “news”, instead of just reporting it like they are supposed to.
Just as fewer and fewer Americans are watching CNN and MSNBC, so are fewer and fewer Americans subscribing to the New York Times, the Washington Post, and all of their fellow Liberal Rags across the country.
Liberal “journalists”, both print and broadcast, have not figured out that their Far Left Liberal Personal political ideology is not shared by the majority of Americans.
They need to wake up and smell what they are shoveling because average Americans are tired of the odor of B.S. coming from their reporting.
You would have thought that, after all of their predictions and assurances to Americans that Hillary Clinton was going to be the 45th President of the United States turned out to be completely wrong, that they was have stepped back and performed a self-assessment of themselves and the product that they were putting out.
Instead, just like their masters in the Far Left Democratic Party, they doubled down on their didactic arrogance and production of fictional articles, now known as “Fake News”, thanks to President Trump.
That is what has led to this “Watershed Moment” as the General called it.
It wasn’t some sort of fascism on the President’s part.
It was a thoughtful and well-measured reaction to over 3 years of Fake News and Personal Attacks.
Just like most average Americans have already done with Liberal Newspapers around the country, the President cancelled his subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post because they were not worth the money that he was spending on them.
