“Paw Patrol” recently came under debate as shows like “Cops” were cancelled in the wake of protests against police brutality, but Ryder and his team of pups aren’t going anywhere.
On Friday, Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany was finishing up with reporters when she named a number of shows that were the subject of “cancel culture,” even naming Adventure Bay’s heroes that includes Chase, a police dog, among other service-related dogs like a lifeguard and construction worker.
She said that President Donald Trump “is also appalled by cancel culture, and cancel culture specifically as it pertains to cops. We saw a few weeks ago that ‘Paw Patrol’, a cartoon show about cops, was cancelled. The show ‘Cops’ was cancelled. ‘Live PD’ was cancelled. Lego halted the sales of their Lego City police station.”

McEnany added, “It is really unfortunate, because I stand with, the president stands with, the 53 per cent of Americans who believe police officers have the most important jobs in this country.”
“Paw Patrol” confirmed through a tweet that they have not been cancelled.
No need to worry. PAW Patrol is not canceled. 🐶

Twitter was quick to react and “Paw Patrol” became a trending topic.
The White House is lying about Paw Patrol.
Yes, the White House is lying about a cartoon about dogs being cancelled

That stupid joke headline about canceling Paw Patrol (which was neither canceled nor even seriously criticized) making it all the way to the White House reinforces the importance of press being careful not to feed the propaganda machine.

You don't have to be a member of the Paw Patrol to know that Kayleigh McEnany is a dog-gone liar, and she wishes folks would stop hounding her about it.
I'll see myself out.

"Nick Jr cancelled us too. Which was a shock. On Paw Patrol we don't even take people to jail. After that, I got into drugs & spent up all my residuals. Ain't talked to my co-stars in years. Just happy to have a job."
