More bad news for the news

How about considering increasing readership by not slapping readers in the face each morning?

    The increasingly anorexic AZ Republic newspaper is a case in point. Long time reporters have been replaced with green novices who have trouble constructing sentences, often sounding like teeny boppers.

    Growing portions of the news are direct feeds from larger dailies around the country. The op-eds are essentially a bygone component. The letters to the editor section is tightly sculpted to their restricted mindset, including few dissenting opinions–with the letters slashed to conform to their new standards of brevity, in keeping with the fewer pages standard.

    Most importantly, unless the reader supports open borders, and the trashing of upstanding elected officials who enforce the law, much to the chagrin of the editors, the not so subtle insults jump off the page as it is being read. Who needs that with their morning coffee?

    The Republic makes its endorsements each and every day, starting long before the actual election. They’ve been sounding the clarion call for and against various people and issues all along. None of it even wears a disguise. They are so blantant, they drove us off. I read my neighbor’s paper in the late afternoon, when he puts it on his trash container with a brick ontop to keep it from blowing away. I scan it, realize how smart I was to cancel our two decade’s long subscription, and then toss it in this trash, where it belongs!!

    Recently I mentioned to my neighbor that a new neighbor was demonstrating a great deal of confidence in our area’s crime enforcement by letting the daily paper pile up on his lawn.
    The unexpected reply came, “Or maybe it just shows what they think of the Republic,” from the lips of an (until recently) life-long card-carrying Democrat.
    I think the daily must be in serious, serious trouble.
