AZ Republic’s columnist compares Republicans to Commie dictator

SRAZ has frequently linked to a Phoenix Business Journal report verifying that Arizona’s newspaper of record is on its last legs. It’s not simply floundering. It’s failing so badly that its subscription rate is the lowest of all 200 newspapers in Gannett’s nationwide stable. That’s not a business model to emulate. In fact, it’s a recipe for disaster. Yet no one is doing more to send reasonable readers fleeing the inflamed rhetoric of the Hillary-endorsing newspaper than its Johnny-One-Note employee, E.J. Montini.

The emaciated columnist who has had no other employer since his early 20’s has reached retirement age, and should pack up his loathing of conservatism and ride off into the sunset. But for the loner with no outlet for his venom spew, this is not an option. Montini, a perpetually irate man possessing a murky relationship with honesty, has nowhere to go.

The only alternative for the newspaper’s survival is to cease the expensive to produce and deliver hard copy editions and switch to all digital. But with news available in everyone’s pocket and free of charge in a wide array of formats, even that attempt at continued existence is iffy at best.  What’s left of the dwindling readership is the senior demographic which leans hard right. They led the Trump supporters and Rush Limbaugh loyalists. And unlike the undereducated millennium voters who supported socialist Bernie Sanders, they are knowledgeable about the destructive evils of socialism and communism, having lost relatives or fought in wars themselves, to eradicate those freedom suffocating evils. But leftist Montini, who never served his country, has no problem comparing Arizona Republican state legislators to the “disinformation campaign” of  Russia’s brutal Communist dictator Joseph Stalin, who was responsible for the suffering and deaths of millions. Unfortunately, the aged columnist has never exhibited the capacity to feel shame for his deceit.

Even the leftist newspaper has a yellow banner above Montini’s irrational  column (to which we did not link) stating, “This piece expresses the views of its author(s) separate from the views of this publication.”

Obviously, that’s difficult to believe. The newspaper’s entire perspective is radically left, and it still keeps this brazen liar on the payroll.

    And I remember once thinking there was finally going to be hope for the bird-cage liner that is the AZ Repugnant when Montini’s predecessor Jon Talton rode off to spew HIS venom elsewhere. How erroneous that prediction turned out!

    • StetsonXXX says:

      If I recall correctly, Talton left as the result of the first wave of dying newspaper’s staff downsizing. He was there at the same time as Montini, who’s been there for decades. Teeny Mont would work for free as long as he could continue to vomit his vicious anti-GOP puke.

      • toughterry says:

        Right you are, Stetson – Talton must be writing his column at the Seattle Times gratis, as the paper declared bankruptcy. But, the venom still flows in his blog, RogueColumnist, a venom filled screed which writhes on.

  2. Clementine says:

    Perpetual negativity has a destructive effect. A quick look at his photo shows what hatred can do. It not only rots one’s soul, but destroys their appearance. We were spared from seeing him when we dropped our longtime subscription, a move we’re never regretted. Montini is no match for Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson either in brains or appearance!

    Liberalism is disorienting. It shrivels the brain.

    I see the results of it everyday here in the People’s Republic of Pima.

  4. Mr. & Mrs. America says:

    Montini, who we stopped reading even before we canceled our subscription following the newspaper’s Hillary endorsement, deals solely in venomous bloodletting. He’s the newspaper’s henchman. It was energizing to drop the overpriced and insulting subscription.

    My parents were reading the local newspaper back when we had two papers. One in the morning and one in the evening. As I grew up and we had only one paper which I read it on my own. I even had my dog trained to go get the paper on the driveway and bring it in the house. Now I don’t dare let my dog put that piece of garbage in her mouth and I don’t want it in my house. Has anyone tried the Epoch Times? Is it worth the read?

    • East Valley Conservative says:

      I’ve received two gratis copies and like what I saw. Its perceptive is conservative and it was pro-Trump which mattered to me, since he didn’t get anything even resembling a fair shake from the far left media. I intend to subscribe, since honest reporting can’t be sustained if we don’t support it.

      I copied this from what came up with a Bing search:

        I have subscribed since the paper’s launch – a refreshing alternative to the scumbag news outlets that prevail. My only problem with Epoch is that the print copy comes irregularly; usually on a Monday and the weeks hard news is already a week old. However, the soft articles are a comfort in these times, and Epoch doesn’t assault you with countless photos of people being vaccinated. Try the offers and see for yourself.
