"A library in West Virginia says it has no intentions of carrying a copy of veteran journalist Bob Woodward’s new tell-all book about the Trump administration.
The Washington Post reported Friday that the Morgan County Public Library in Berkeley Springs, W.Va., does not plan to place Woodward’s book, “Fear: Trump in the White House,” on its shelves."


The right continues it's drive toward censorship and limiting free speech.

So? Libraries have limited shelfing space. They decide what books not to order all the time. I used to work in one.

Berkeley Springs is a pretty little town on the way from Winchester to PA. I usually stop there whenever I drive to see relatives in Pittsburgh. If you pass through, stop at the Dairy Queen. Better food than you might expect and always staffed by pleasant young women. If you want a very scenic drive, take Route 9 through the mountain passes.

Dishonesty? Like comparing Google's massive worldwide reach to that of some small hick library in fucking West Virginia?

Seriously? This is all you got? Just laughable this is the example the Progs cite for Trump Cultists "censorship".

BTW - Google censors the shit out of their search engine to operate in China. Yet we don't hear a peep from the Progs over that. Yeah yeah yeah - they are a private company and all that. But their motto is "don't be evil" and the leaked tape after the 2016 election shows their Corporate leadership are chock-full of SJW Progs.

A library is a government run public institution.

Hopefully you recognize the difference there.

A rural library is not the Library of Congress, with a copy of every book published. It's also run locally by the public who funds it with limited tax dollars.

Whereas posting links to infowars is free and Google is nationwide and considers itself a Platform, but acts like a Publisher.

Hmm, not to me. Sounds like a tiny rural library has limited shelf space and a limited budget. No reason to buy a book that maybe half a dozen people will use.


Well "free" means the budget doesn't matter.

And, there is no shelf space for the best selling book in a decade?

You mean if they don't buy it a few weeks after it comes out, it's censorship?

Look what a deal people got if they waited a few months to buy "What Happened?"

Fiction titles sell well these days, but better to wait for discounts and/or the softcover.

Smart Librarians.

No, I mean if they refuse a free copy of the #1 bestseller, that sure seems like censorship.

Another day another straw man.

I'm left leaning, maybe not as much as President Eisenhower, and I don't believe a business should have to make a cake they don't want to make. Bars don't have to serve people they don't like either, if it's racial then that is another thing. --sometimes decisions are not simple.

The alt right keeps cooking up these fictitious hoards of leftist boogie men to make themselves feel better about being the fools they are.

In fact, the library should be able to hire a designated literary sniper to take out authors of terrorist works like Woodward, exactly as the Founding Fathers intended.

If the library refused a free copy would you consider that censorship?


Only if they had total lack of shelf space and weren't buying any books.

I wonder how long before the book hits the discount bin at 50% off?

Why are you being purposely dishonest again? You've been told multiple times that the book was offered for FREE. Why do you persist in claiming the library didn't buy it??

Why do Trump supporters continually lie?

The Board Members did not know the book was to be donated. They probably have a policy of rejecting used books because people show up with boxes full of tattered, outdated titles they couldn't offload at the garage sale. I have several librarians in my family, so I know how libraries work. According to the WaPo, it was an employee, not the leadership, of the Library which rejected the donation.

*This is from reading the UPDATED article, not the original one*

However, Public Libraries refuse both to buy books and reject free books all the time. That's very common.

And it's laughable that one of the thousands of public libraries, this one in a tiny area serving a miniscule population, is the equivalent of a lifetime ban from Youtube apparently over a years-old video that nobody had a problem with.

So, it's still false equivalency. And reeks of desperation.

Hilarious reading some of the Progs on this site claiming that they and the SJW's are all about free speech.

They can't be this stupid, so I chalk it up to rank dishonesty.

It's like a parody that they hold up this nobody library in bum-fuck West Virginia as some sort massive example of hypocrisy.

Which turned out to be an employee not following policy, anyway.

WaPo is so desperate for anti-Trump News, they are now trolling Zuckbook to find "My Library Donation was rejected" stories and running them as Big News.

Does this mean YouTube will be ending Alex Jones' lifetime ban and restoring one of the top news sites? Twitter will be ending Sargon's ban? Google and Apple putting Infowars App back in their Play/App Stores (~90% of Mobile OS)?
