Pathetic AZ Republic seeks dumbed down readers

AZ República offers to take burdensome task of Googling off your hands

Today we are treated to additional pathetic overtures from the dying Periódico de la República de Arizona  (Arizona Republic).  In yet another bizarre move, the pro-illegal immigration, homosexual promoting newspaper that fills space with oversize photos rather than content, runs this multi-color solicitation atop its front page: “Go deeper with digital. Great reads. Rich databases. Interactive features.”

Following such enticements is a digital link to Arizona Pride Festivals in Bisbee and Flagstaff. (Hint: The “pride” is not based in any accomplishment or through earned, meritorious achievement.)

Accompanying these tempting lures, is this inanity: “Have a question? We can find answers to the most serious, goofy, playful and “I’ve always wondered about that” ones.  Take a look at asked and answered.”

It’s obvious the declining daily is seeking less than intellectual readers desirous of incisive news. We give it credit for acknowledging the capacity of its dwindling readership. The paper is clearly seeking those unable to Google.

This 2012 The State of the News Media annual report from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism, is filled with graphs, charts and actual figures, detailing the crisis affecting America’s newspapers.  The Arizona Republic is in deep decline as profit margins tumble. The past 20 years show a steady slide in overall  newspaper paid circulation — which stood at 62.3 million in 1990 and fell to 43.4 million in 2010 — a decline of 30%.

The remaining few at the Arizona Republic are awaiting their retirement-age birthdays, allowing them to shuffle out the door. Last one out turns off the lights. Click.

    The statist Propagandisto de Repugnancio is dying an ignominious and well-deserved death. The sooner APS and SRP turns off the lights for them, the better.

    The good news is that this signals that the People may… just MAY, be waking up.

    The bad news is that I will need to find another source of liner for my bird cages!

    A first-rate example of the mainstream media’s pro-illegal alien agenda is an AP article in today’s Arizona repulsive newspaper. THREE separate tines in the brief report headlined ‘Republican Ayotte backs the immigration overhaul,’ the words “estimated 11 million immigrants” appear. These jerks must subscribe to the cut and paste technique of reporting. They must also think we are brain dead, since we read their drivel. I have no choice due to my line of work. There is no way I would personally subscribe to this odious spew.

      We have to go back to the history of WWII for the answer to the repeated use of the deceptive number of 11 million illegals.

      Joseph Goebbels, Hitler’s propaganda chief, was the master of the “big lie” tactic in which a lie, no matter how outrageous, is repeated often enough that it will eventually be accepted as truth.

      Nazi Goebbels’ reported quote was. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

    Republic columnist E.J. Montini cites Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the biggest government expansionist in American history (prior to the dictatorship of Barack Hussein Obama), as the model for Gov. Jan Brewer to follow in her pursuit of Medicaid expansion. Like FDR, she thinks money should fall freely from the miserly rich, who in fact pay the largest share of taxes. It’s the spread the wealth mentality, marginalizing those who take the risks, work long hours to keep their business afloat and create jobs who should be deplored. Karl Marx must be in all his glory seeing how far our democracy has fallen. Obama told entrepreneurial business owners “You didn’t build that!”

    WE tried to term the traitors out, but there are so many uninformed Republican’s out there. McLiar’s approval rating is in the toilet, but big deal at this time, he is again betraying the American people. The Repulsive is going out of business, it should have happened many years ago, I talk to Republican’s who can not get away from reading the newspaper, please tell me are these the same Republican’s who voted for McTraitor and McFlakey?

    Today I received an email from the Noospaper urging reduced subscriptions for Father’s Day gifts!! “Sign up Dad today and you’ll get 3 months for the price of 1!”

    They are now resorting to giving away their failing newspaper. Most of us love our Dads too much to give them such a slimy gift.
