Earlier today, CNBC revealed that Republican President Donald Trump’s military parade was going to cost as much as $92M. This is roughly nine times the original estimated cost.
It made the rounds on most media outlets and, of course, many people were outraged about the needless waste of taxpayer money to entertain the President. Later in the day, it was reported that the parade has been canceled, or at least postponed.
This is what good journalism does. This is why a free and independent press is vital to the proper functioning of our nation. This is why it is important to speak truth to power.
