In the age of Trump, the liberal Washington Post had a booming business. All of their left wing readers would devour every story they printed about the walls closing in on Trump.
Now that Trump is out of office, the WaPo is reportedly struggling to maintain subscriber levels and is on track to lose money.
What a shame.
The New York Times reported:
In the years after Jeff Bezos bought The Washington Post in 2013, business boomed. Droves of readers bought digital subscriptions, and the newsroom roughly doubled in size, adding hundreds more journalists.
But The Post’s business has stalled in the past year. As the breakneck news pace of the Trump administration faded away, readers have turned elsewhere, and the paper’s push to expand beyond Beltway coverage hasn’t compensated for the loss.
The organization is on track to lose money in 2022, after years of profitability, according to two people with knowledge of the company’s finances.
Like so many other media outlets, they’re just lost without Trump.

The media’s obsession with Trump made them a fortune, it fed libs paranoia but without him most of them are hurting https://t.co/aPTe5KAxXT

The Washington Post used to be a great newspaper.
Now it’s just liberal propaganda. They act like a mouthpiece for the Democrat party.
They deserve to fail.
