“You know how MSM journalists could avoid having to spend millions on a #superbowl commercial to gain some underserved credibility?” Trump Jr. tweeted. “How about report the news and not their leftist BS for a change.”
The paper’s ad, which ran 60 seconds, was narrated by actor Tom Hanks, who co-starred in the 2017 film “The Post.” The ad showcased the importance of journalism and the Jeff Bezos-owned publication's slogan, "Democracy dies in darkness."
Fredrick Kunkle, a Post staff writer and co-chair of its union, echoed Trump Jr.’s criticism of the ad, which he called an “infuriating expense.”
Kunkle slammed the Post for supposedly not providing health insurance to its part-time employees, laying people off, cutting their severance, and yet having the funds to run an expensive ad during the Super Bowl.
