BREAKING NEWS – Washington, D.C. – The White House will reportedly begin charging reporters $170 for coronavirus tests upon entry into “The People’s House,” first reported the Washington Post.

News organizations will now be required to foot the bill each time a reporter enters the White House – a policy that has prompted backlash on social media, and has been interpreted as an “admission fee” that could burden smaller, cash strapped news outlets. CNN stated that they can’t afford to pay it either, citing that their ratings have falling drastically since they can no longer trash Donald Trump, nightly.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki stated that the prices can fluctuate, depending on if the reporter asks difficult questions or easy preapproved no-brainers.
