Florida County Officials Reject ‘New York Times’ Library Subscription, Citing 'Fake News'

https://www.tampabay.com/news/florid...subscriptions/

The Citrus County Commission came to a consensus at the end of October: The county should not spend roughly $2,700 annually to buy digital subscriptions to the New York Times for the 70,000 library-card holders who reside in the county.

The commissioners were not shy in sharing why they thought it was a waste of money.

“Do we really need to subscribe to the New York Times?” one commissioner asked during the meeting.

“Why the heck would we spend money on something like that?” asked another.

Commissioner Scott Carnahan appeared the most passionate against approving the funding, alluding to political reasons as part of his decision.

“Fake news, I agree with President Trump,” Carnahan said. “I don’t want the New York Times in this county. I don’t agree with it, I don’t like 'em, it’s fake news and I’m voting no. They can take that money and do something else with it ... I support Donald Trump."

Don't see a problem with this as modern media is nothing more than click bait and biased propaganda.

Pretending otherwise is just delusional, Journalism has a long way to go before being considered at all credible.

LOL they are doing it because Trump said they are fake news when no one does more fake news than Trump. Trump has had over 13,000 lies since he has taken office.

Do you think Trump is credible?
