AZ Republic choking on its commitment to liberalism


There comes a point when it could be considered heartless not to have a modicum of pity for the Hillary-endorsing, open borders promoting Periódico de la República de Arizona (Arizona Republic newspaper) despite having brought its calamity  on itself. The already dwindling subscriptions dipped even lower when irate subscribers cancelled after the endorsement of the scandal-plagued Hillary.

Even with the market rallying after Donald Trump’s victory, there was nothing to rave about with parent company Gannett’s stock closing price Friday standing at $9.79. At this time last year it was steady at 17.75. Check out the historical chart on the right side of the link to see the calamitous fall coinciding with the election. In 1998 the Central Newspapers, Inc. shares (then not flying under Gannett, Inc.) were trading north of $70.00 a share.

When the Hillary Clinton endorsement was made, it was heralded as “bold move for the conservative newspaper.” Literate Arizonans know all too well the newspaper is anything but “conservative” since the death of publishers Eugene and Nina Pulliam.  Its remaining senior employees are solid lefties who march in lockstep to the radical George Soros drumbeat. The newspaper endorsed all of the recipients of his largesse, from John McCain and Hillary Clinton to Paul Penzone the incoming Maricopa County Sheriff — linked by their open border policySoros also funded the opponent to Maricopa County Attorney Bill Montgomery, who was able to thwart the assault from the left. The globalist multi-billionaire financier has been giving $ millions to oust law enforcement professionals throughout the United States as he attempts to restructure the criminal justice system. This Discover the Networks page provides a guide to the Soros syndicate.

The Phoenix Republic insert often embarrassingly carries the identical articles the increasingly anorexic newspaper runs — and on the same day. While it’s true the demographic for home subscriptions is predominantly senior citizens, they are not all suffering from dementia, and actually notice the repetition, stuck in among the obviously pre-written pages and propped up by Gannett’s mainstay USAToday, the daily distributed free of charge outside hotel room doors. Often referred to as the Repugnant or the Repulsive, a more accurate name for the pathetic excuse for a local newspaper would be The Daily Regurgitation. There have been days when the news content is fewer than 25 pages, tucked in among ads for hearing aids and retirement facilities. In a futile attempt to lure younger readers, it’s focus is now on entertainment and restaurants and the Cronkite student reporters, sorely in need of mentoring cover serious events as if they were writing a whodunit novel.

Whichever the preferred name, the daily fishwrap is shrinking. An example of the skillful writing keeping readers engaged is this recent Page One headline: “Asking schools to protect ‘dreamers.’”  No word of who was asking. The first paragraph reveals the enthusiastic benefactors wanting to provide illegal alien competition for American citizen students to access higher education are professors, faculty and staff at Arizona’s state universities and community colleges. What a surprise.

The Arizona Republic would rather die insulting its few remaining readers than alter it’s left-wing stance.

    Finally. When CNN and the likes were saying how the “conservative” AZ Republic was endorsing Clinton, well, I almost choked myself. I had subscribed to the Republic for years and thought maybe I was mistaken about their liberal slant. Happy to see that those that actually read the Republic think the same way.

    #neverTrumper erick erickson (gope hack Hugh Hewitt too in Salem Group) and his establishment gope/uniparty media RedState(DeadState) Salem media group has issues too, birds of a feather.

    Salem Media Group’s RedState: Jeff Sessions Not ‘the Brightest Person in the Senate’

    Since its acquisition by Salem Communications (now Salem Media Group) in January 2014, RedState has seen a decline in its already diminishing relevance and web traffic. Today, RedState’s Alexa traffic ranking is 3,417 in the United States. (Breitbart’s Alexa ranking, for the sake of comparison, is 247.)

    On January 13, 2014 – the day Salem acquired RedState – their stock closed at $8.95. Today, Salem Media Group’s stock closed at $3.75. That roughly $5 decline in stock price, coupled with Salem’s outstanding shares reported between 24.26 to 25.46 million, means that the company has lost approximately $125 million in value since its acquisition of the Eagle Publishing Regnery/Human Events/RedState assets……

      Sen. Jeff Sessions has a magnificent resume and is a man of unquestionable character. If only Arizona had someone of his caliber representing our state, I’d be more than satisfied.Instead, we have two Republicrat duds. Sessions is an A+ conservative.
      Check out his background:

      • azgary says:

        yep, thats why establishment hacks like RedState, Hewitt, erickson and salem media group hate him, while Patriots love him.

    • Hometown Guy says:

      My two most unfavorite liberals posing as conservatives on “KKNT-AM The Patriot” are Trump hating Michael Medved and some pompous dunce named Steve Deace, who backs all of his venomous spew against Donald Trump with his own skewed brand of religion. They both disgust me. I also find it disturbing that KKNT keeps them both on the air. Surely there are actual conservatives who would bring their ratings higher. I turn these two off.

      • azgary says:

        for me its hewitt and levin. hell hewitt even uses politico as his major source for news and information.

        levin becoming a big neverTrumping blowhard who even after finally saying ok does all he can to undermine him while constantly trying to sell stuff.

        salem is made up mostly of faux conservatives from hotair to the other sites and hosts we have mentioned.

        this election has exposed many posers who will not be forgiven by millions.

    I stopped by a Fry’s grocery store on Wednesday. In front of several check-out lines were wire stands filled with AZ rags.
    They were using the come-on by using placards telling folks that the paper was where they could find all the black Friday sales.

    No NEWS, folks, just a source to find the best deals on toasters.
    (they should know about toast.)

    Meanwhile, Castro has gone horizontal as per the news online.
    While Cubans in Miami take to the streets to celebrate, the political elite from around the world send their tributes and flowery statements.

    Even popefrancis said that he is “grieving” over Castro’s death.
    And the junior socialist Prime Minister of Canada was quick to offer post-mortem praise.

    Obama, no doubt, will seize the opportunity to get his face and his mouth in front of cameras and microphones.

      Trump full statement on castro being sent to hell……

      “Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades.” “Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.

      “While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve.

      “Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty”.

      “I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.”

      -President Elect Donald J. Trump

        Trump’s statement is what good Americans are pleased to hear. One American – who was working with Obama on ‘normalization’ with Communist Cuba – and was #nevertrump from the get-go, our own pathetic excuse for a U.S. senator – Jeff Flake is probably is a little sadden by the death of the dictator. We made no attempt to have Cuba free political prisoners or anything else that would help the Cuban people with the ‘deal’ Flake helped Obama with for over a year. Imagine – a U.S. senator working against America and with a president who detests what we stand for.

  4. Conservative Since Birth says:

    SRAZ – Thanks for the heads-up on what the AZ Republic is regurgitating from the Left. I don’t even stop and look at the headline in the grocery store. That paper has nothing I want – like fair and objective reporting. The Democrat party, after the shellacking they took on November 8th, dug in their heels and want to go even further Left. They haven’t been in these sorry straits since the 1920’s. But leftwing newspapers like the Republic – insisting on staying the course and getting behind a Soros agenda will surely hasten their demise.

  5. Realist says:

    George Soros funded the protesters at the Trump rallies around the country. Via social media large crowds of young unemployed socialists can be herded like the sheep they are to disrupt and create chaos, making it seem as though Donald Trump’s very appearance before crowds numbering in the multi thousands of his own supporters were the problem. Nothing could be further from the truth as evidenced by his head turning victory on election day. The liberals heads are still spinning.

  6. Doc says:

    Speakin’ of fine news reporting…abc’s Nightline reporter stated the following regarding the loss of fidel castro, the murderous dictator:

    “ABC’s {jim} Avila went so far as to tout how Castro “was considered, even to this day, the George Washington of his country among those who remain in Cuba.”

    …for God’s sake, will SOMEBODY SLAP TH’ TASTE OUTTA’ HIS MOUTH?!?!?!

  7. VINOAZ says:

    Donald Trump! There you go again, telling the truth. I love it. In contrast Obama, Carter and the pope, three of the worst people alive, show how morally bankrupt liberalism is.

  8. Kathy says:

    We stopped getting & reading the “propaganda AZ newspaper” back in the 80’s because of their lies and 30 yrs later nothing has changed. The people who continue to pay for “propaganda news” could use their money better elsewhere.

  9. Conservative Since Birth says:

    Those who said Trump will never be president:

    Who Likes The Taste Of Crow?? Hahaha!!

      The brazen arrogance of liberals is hilarious! It seems as though they all were fed the same talking points.
