Draculesque newspaper sustained by drawing conservative blood
U.S. Rep. Paul Gosar (AZ-CD-4) is an unapologetic conservative. As a dentist, his specialty was teeth, but as a congressman, he’s had to learn about fangs.
The feeble, Hillary-supporting Arizona Republic, hemorrhaging subscriptions and narrowly escaping yet another hostile takeover, will fall on its sword promoting an anti-Trump, open borders, restrictions on Second Amendment rights and abortion-on-demand agenda as it insults its few remaining readers.
As it gasps its last breaths, the newspaper now has Paul Gosar in its cross-hairs. Like Bram Stoker‘s Dracula, it sustains itself by feeding on blood. Laurie Roberts, the former sob saga columnist has been shuffled into the conservative slayer position. The emaciated, radically left newspaper got a life enhancing transfusion when it oversaw the election of Kyrsten Sinema to the U.S. Senate and five of our nine congressional seats shift to the Dem camp. Republicans David Schweikert (CD-6) and Debbie Lesko (CD-8) also need our support, as the left is determined to turn the red state of Arizona a deep blue.
Longtime newspaper employees have been unceremoniously dumped, including Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist Steve Benson, whose parent-company Gannett could no longer afford. The daily now functions with ASU Cronkite J School students working out of their cars, sans editors.
Gannett Co. Inc.’s stock has been in a downward freefall. Yahoo! Finance exposes the excessive salaries of the newspaper’s execs in the last paragraph of the article that refers to the “melting ice cube of a business.”
In January we posted “AZ Republic: homeless vagrant on borrowed time,” detailing how the 10-story building and parking garage the Republic once called home has been sold, with a lease back arrangement from the real estate company that purchased the newspaper’s properties — obviously not the model of success.
Unable to ignore the inescapable truth that it is on life support, the AZ Republic is committed to taking down conservatives. Don’t let that happen. Get involved. Become a Precinct Committeeman. The 2020 election is right around the corner.
