Subscribe to a “news” paper? Who’d pay for communist propaganda? Even communists don’t waste time on that stupid stuff.
Hard to believe now, but The Chicago Tribune and The Los Angeles Times were Republican for many decades.
Indeed. Back when these folks ran them.
“Hard to believe now, but The Chicago Tribune and The Los Angeles Times were Republican for many decades.”
The LA Times has been far left forever!
I quit that communist paper for another publication in 1958!!
Excellent... all rats too!
