    The bullpen of the 1993 San Diego Padres Citrus County Commission (pictured above) has denied funding to county libraries for digital subscriptions to the New York Times. Led by left-handed middle-reliever area man Scott Carnahan, the commission (comprised of Scott, Jeff, Ron, Jimmie, and Brian) refused to sanction the $2,700 annual budget that would allow Citrus County library patrons online access to the paper of record; as Carnahan told The Tampa Bay Times (no relation and, in this case, real news?):

    “Fake news, I agree with President Trump. I don’t want the New York Times in this county. I don’t agree with it, I don’t like ’em, it’s fake news and I’m voting no. They can take that money and do something else with it … I support Donald Trump.”

    That is some bullshit right there, Scottie.
