President Trump has vowed to cancel all government subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post, declaring that it will save hundreds of thousands of dollars.
“Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant cost saving—hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars will be saved,” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said in an email to the Wall Street Journal‘s Andrew Restuccia.

Summit.news reports: The proposal comes in the wake of the president canceling the White House’s subscriptions to the print versions of the newspapers, calling them ‘fake news’.
“We don’t even want it in the White House anymore,” Trump said of the Times during an interview with Hannity earlier this week.
“We’re going to probably terminate that and the Washington Post. They’re fake.” Trump added.
The WSJournal reported that a White House official has indeed confirmed that print editions of the Times and the Post were not delivered to the White House on Thursday.
The impact on the newspapers is sure to be significant, for example The New York Times receives around two-thirds of its revenue from subscriptions.
Both newspapers have profited massively from opposing Trump’s presidency.
Meanwhile, the Times via Paul Krugman suggested this week that Trump and his supporters will start using “mob” tactics such as “roughing up the witnesses” called to testify in impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill.
Krugman suggested that the Republican interruption of the closed impeachment hearing would be followed up, and that House Democrats should start “thinking about precautions” because “anything is possible.”
