Huge boon to taxpayers

The Wall Street Journal reports:

The White House is planning to instruct federal agencies to not renew their subscriptions to the New York Times and the Washington Post, administration officials said, escalating President Trump’s attacks on the media outlets.

“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 Thursday.

Hm. Well, they could also save a lot of money by getting rid of the CIA and all other intelligence-gathering government agencies. They could save a lot of money by closing the whole government down and going home, but there are some drawbacks to that way of doing things.
