WaPo deserves both a Smart and a Funny click for that.

How did we know The Washington Post didn't already get it redlit? Before posting their own private jet story, I would think they'd have checked the Price line. They just got a bad deal.

Can we quit greenlighting the Washinton Post links that most Farkers can't read?

Or start posting the contents of said articles as the Weeners?

You know what's sad? I used to opine for a President Bartlet during The West Wing year. Now I think Frank Underwood would be an improvement.

'member John Sunanu? Spiro Agnew? The Voyage of the Reaganuts? Bébé Ratso or whatever his name was? 'member Strom Thurmond, George Wallace, Yertle the Turtle, Senator Byrd (Damned-o-crat) and the KKK?

What ever happened to the Nixon Administration? Oh, wait. It metastasized into today's GOOP.

What ever happened to that dim-witted klutz, Gerald Ford, after he stopped Duping for the Warren Commission and subbing for Nixon?

Oh wait, he became Donald Trump's tongue and continues to trip over himself and the truth to this very day, despite being dead and buried.

I could go one, but 'member one thing:  the morons running the world today weren't even born in 1968 unless you count Ben Stein, Donald Rumsfeld, Newt Gingrich, George Bush and the like. They never saw Win. They never saw Real Class. They never felt the alcoholic lash of Nixon's paranoia and snark or watched him dance the Tango of Doom with Doctor Henry Strangelove Kissinger.

Fark is a site that is meant to bring interesting news to its members for community discussion. Often, the most interesting news is on paywall sites because those sites collect enough money to pay competent people to generate interesting news, unlike the bullshiat clickbait that otherwise infests the Internet. That's how this and other similar links get greenlit. In short, TANSTAAFL. Not even on the Internet.

Now, it would be nice if Fark were able to cut deals with such sites, as the big aggregators like Google, Microsoft, and Apple do in their news apps, to be able to provide this content at no charge to their users. But, alas, Drew is not a sufficiently large swinging dick to manage it. If you're not willing to support the sites that are linked here by buying a subscription (which would be the preferred way to ensure that the US successfully maintains a truly free press) or by even taking the simple steps needed to steal the content by bypassing the paywall, then maybe you should just avoid the link and click a different one instead.

You don't get it because you don't submit links.

Are you aware that you are explaining why this link got greenlit right after you said you didn't get why this link got greenlit?
