Who says Hillary Clinton dislikes the media?

 

Speaking to Yale graduates over the weekend, the former candidate for president urged the class to stop the spread of fake news and help support journalism by paying for it.

 

“It means calling out actual fake news when we see it and supporting brave journalists and their reporting maybe even by subscribing to a newspaper,” she said.

 

As Michelle Wolf, the comedian who attended the White House correspondents dinner, noted, President Donald Trump’s election has been a boon to most of the media business. The New York Times revenue topped $1 billion in 2017. In the final quarter of last year, it signed up 157,000 new subscribers, taking full-year subscriptions to 2.6 million.
