No. I'm making a leap.

Do you want to feel like punching a hole through the a brick horsefeathering wall today?

https://www.cbsnews.com/news/new-york-t ... Pjz0BcbEcg

Officials in Citrus County, Florida, heard the public library system's request for a digital New York Times subscription and denied it, citing President Trump's belief that the nationally acclaimed paper is "fake news."

"Do we really need to subscribe to The New York Times?" one county commissioner asked after a vote on the motion during a public meeting. The other commissioners laughed, video from the meeting shows.

"I actually was going to say that. I'm going to be a 'no' for this. Fake news. I agree with President Trump," another commissioner, identified as Scott Carnahan by the Citrus County Chronicle, said. "I will not vote for this. I do not want The New York Times in this county," he continued, going on to say he does like agree with or like the paper.


"I know you have 140 readers, but those guys can subscribe and have it come to their home," one commissioner said. "I support Donald Trump."

Another commissioner said, "When I saw $2,700 a year for a digital format for a newspaper — how many people are actually reading that for the $2,700?"

"I was going to ask, 'Why the heck would we spend money on something like that?'" said a third.

"They have a good crossword puzzle," another commissioner joked.

After withdrawing the motion, the commissioners joked it was the "best money ever saved." However, many people were upset with the decision and felt the commissioners were denying residents access to the news media.

FINALLY! Glad these guys are joining the modern era before anyone overly earnest on staff were to be involved in an accident:

https://www.theonion.com/the-onion-laun ... 1839726561

As a journalistic standard bearer, The Onion has long been a champion of suppressing damaging stories about powerful people. What our cover-up desk now enables us to do is take our efforts at concealment into the 21st century. Not only will we be on the ground tampering with evidence and destroying any compromising documents that fall into our hands, we’ll also have a 24-hour secure tip line for anyone with information about a negative story that could become public. Using these methods, our reporters will be on the front lines of ruining investigations, obliterating incriminating documents, and threatening victims into silence forever.

While we face stiff competition within the news industry to stifle transparency and accountability, we at The Onion are positive that we’ll be capable of covering up stories that other organizations would never dream of.
