White House Cancels Fake News

by Daveda Gruber:

On Tuesday the White House has declared that subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post will not be renewed.

President Trump had given some information to Sean Hannity on his nightly show, “Hannity” that aired on FOX News earlier this week, on Monday, when he referenced to the newspapers and hinted that that he would “probably terminate” both papers and called them “fake.”

Trump said to Hannity, “The media is corrupt. Not all media is. Look, I know some, some great people, including you. But I know some great journalists. Look, they gave Pulitzer Prizes to people that got it wrong. Okay. All these people for doing it from 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.  They’re Fake. But you take a look at The New York Times and you take a look at the kind of reporting they do. It was all ˗˗it turned out to be ˗˗ all wrong.”

Trump also put down the Times for its coverage of him during the 2016 election. He described an “apology” for covering him “so badly.”

Trump also said, “After the election, The New York Times apologized for their coverage because they were covering me in such a way. So when I won, they actually apologized to their subscribers because they were losing thousands and thousands of subscribers. The New York Times wrote an apology. Nothing else. You know they’re saying, ‘well, it wasn’t really an apology’. It was because they covered me so badly. And then when I said, sort of interesting, I think I hope I say, you know, the good news is now be covered fairly again.”

Both of the newspapers have been in the crosshairs with Trump.

The Times have been described by Trump as “failing” and putting a label of the “Amazon Washington Post” on the Post. The Post is owned by billionaire and Amazon founder, Jeff Bezos.

Ultimately, some confusion arose because on Tuesday, Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told “Politico” that the president was referring to subscriptions “which we won’t be renewing,” as opposed to terminating reporters from the papers’ access to the White House.

Allegedly, reporters were speaking out by throwing information out that they were going to be denied access to the White House.

It allegedly appears that reporters have once again misconstrued the facts by interrupting them as a personal attack as opposed to an entity merely cancelling a subscription to a newspaper.

Want to Meet Our New Press Secretary?

On Tuesday, First Lady Melania Trump announced that Stephanie Grisham, who is a top aide to our FLOTUS, will replace Sarah Huckabee Sanders as White House press secretary.

Grisham will become the White House communications director. She will likely be tough at the podium. She has proven that she is a stark supporter of the first lady from the beginning.

Melania Trump tweeted:

Sanders had announced her intentions to step down as White House press secretary earlier this month.

On Tuesday, Huckabee Sanders took to Twitter and tweeted that Grisham “will be an incredible asset to the president and the country.”

Huckabee Sanders tweeted:

White House press briefings have taken on a new structure under the Trump administration. Traditional televised press briefings in the James S. Brady Press Briefing Room have almost stopped.

During this year, the president said he told Huckabee Sanders “not to bother” giving those regular briefings anymore. He said that the press covers her “rudely and inaccurately.”

Press briefings are mostly happening in impromptu gatherings outside the West Wing.

Personally, I liked Huckabee Sanders as our press secretary. She did a fabulous job under very difficult circumstances. Most of the mainstream media did not quote her accurately. They picked out words and sentences that suited the message that they wanted to report.

Grisham will be the third press secretary under the Trump administration. Sean Spicer, resigned from the position that put Sanders Huckabee at the helm in 2017.

Good luck to Grisham. I think she’ll be good at this. Left wing reporters are not nice people. Do I dare say that they are “the enemy of the people?”
