"Cash democracy ousside."

The Washington Post's digital banner now reads "Democracy dies in darkness."

The change comes after a spokeswoman for WaPo, Kris Coratti, told CNN that the "value statement" was going to appear on more of the news company's platforms.

The slogan first appeared on WaPo's Snapchat.

People had a lot of jokes about the change.

Everyone's saying the new Washington Post tagline is really dark, but I find it sort of optimistic actually.

Some were fans of the slogan. This guy wrote that he loved "the new goth vibe."
