Hysterical Sissy BlueCheckmarks Successfully Mob-Shriek the Newseum Into Censoring Their "You Are Fake News" T-Shirt

Because of course. This is why I didn't even want anyone to buy these stupid shirts from this temple to media egotism; I knew they'd fold like a cheap gimp-suit. They are the enemy.

Of course, the racist New York Times is supposedly standing up for Free Speech by keeping its vile racist editorial board member, but the BlueCheckmark sissies are very sure that Free Speech requires censorship when you say something bad about the press.

The Newseum on Saturday pulled the sale of a T-shirt bearing the message "you are very fake news" following an online backlash against the merchandising of the slogan frequently employed by President Donald Trump to undermine journalists' work.

"The Newseum has removed the "You Are Very Fake News" T-shirts from the gift shop and online," a statement posted on the media-focused museum's website read. "We made a mistake and we apologize. A free press is an essential part of our democracy and journalists are not the enemy of the people."

A free press is vital, but the ability to freely criticize the press? Not vital. In fact, it's a Thoughtcrime.

By the way, the Newseum is not even fullfiling the shirts orders already placed. They say they'll be sending refunds.
