"Stop the Presses" is the seventh episode of the third season of the American animated television series BoJack Horseman. It was written by Joe Lawson and directed by Adam Parton. The episode was released in the United States, along with the rest of season three, via Netflix on July 22, 2016. Angela Bassett, Candice Bergen, Abbi Jacobson, Margo Martindale, J. K.

When BoJack attempts to cancel a newspaper subscription, he instead receives sage advice from the newspaper representative. Todd and Emily begin a ride-sharing business with only female drivers, and Emily attempts to hide the fact that she slept with BoJack from Todd.


"Stop the Presses" received generally positive reviews from critics. Les Chappell of AV Club, who gave the episode an "A-", praised the show for being able to "craft episodes that ... are easily identifiable as 'the XX episode'" with "Stop the Presses" being labeled "the first episode of BoJack to become unstuck in time".[2] Jenny Jaffe of Vulture gave the episode four out of five stars, writing that the episode "has a few worrisome moments, but over and over, it pulls itself back from the edge".[3]
