This is just another page in the battle between President Trump and the mainstream media.
The White House said it wouldn’t renew subscriptions to The New York Times and The Washington Post on Tuesday after President Trump hinted at the move earlier in the week on Fox News’ “Hannity.”
Trump suggested that he would "probably terminate" both papers during a Monday interview with Sean Hannity, in which he called them "fake."
Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham told Politico on Tuesday that Trump was referring to subscriptions “which we won’t be renewing,” as opposed to terminating reporters from the papers’ access to the White House.
"The media is corrupt. Not all media is. Look, I know some, some great people, including you," Trump said to Hannity. "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."
