Why can't I print webpages on Treehouse website without losing style?

I came across this article and wonder if this is the reason webpages of Treehouse website don't present with style as seen whenever I want to print certain pages such as current track, course path, etc.

https://css-tricks.com/print-stylesheet-approaches-blacklist-vs-whitelist/

Is there a way to print pages here without losing style? Or, is it because information such as course lists and tracks considered proprietary information so I am not supposed to be able to do so?

Thanks.

HTML deals with content, CSS with presentation so I don't think the issue is proprietary information as you end up getting the content anyway but stripped out of its visual aids. I believe this is to offer a better experience on paper. That being said, Chrome Web Developer allows you to ignore print styles as seen here and here.
