Wow, this sounds really bad! From The Hill:

But it’s The Hill so you know it’s misleading crap:
Headline omits the fact that White House plans to put up a new website next month, and all petitions will be restored. https://t.co/boq85C0CZU

At least the headline on the article is somewhat accurate:
But he most accurate, however, is the article’s URL: “…trump-admin-to-temporarily-take-down-petition-website.”
But, hey … honesty means losing out on all of that sweet, sweet anti-Trump engagement:
If citizens can't petition their government with grievances, we do not have a democratic government.#ImpeachTrump to restore democracy.

Big surpise? No! They won't listen f2f, they won't hold townhalls, they don't take calls. Arrest peaceful protestors. They will be GONE!

How much more of this do we have to watch? Every institution and policy that helps and protects Americans is being destroyed by removed. Republicans have sold their soul and the time has come for us to take back the control. #WhyIResist

Talk about censorship!

You get the point.
And maybe reporters owe Sarah Huckabee Sanders an apology as this tweet from The Hill certainly falls into the “purposefully misleading” category?
