Arizona Republic writes its own obituary

Far left newspapers quickly dying off

There’s no question hard copy newspapers are a relic from times past. Even Associated Press acknowledged that fact with its recent report titled, “U.S. newspapers continuing to die at rate of 2 each week.” News is now free, instant and as close as our fingertips. Various vantage points are the reader’s to choose. Paying to be insulted is no longer the only option.

The hapless, dwindling number* of subscribers to the local daily have been met with outrageous assaults for their loyalty. This Dec. 30, 2021, post, ‘AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.,” exposed the latest money saving scam engaged in by the failing newspaper: Non-deliveries to paying subscribers, commonly known as theft.

Columnists who previously wrote inanities, have now become voices of the democrat party, relentlessly promoting illegal immigration.

When the Hillary-endorsing, Trump-hating newspaper runs a report titled, “What to know about primary voting,” it’s time to run the other way. One of the authors is former democrat and unconcealed Trump-despiser Stephen Richer, who is currently Maricopa County recorder, overseeing our countywide elections. In 2020, he squeaked into office 50.1% to 49.9%.

The Arizona Republic is struggling with a skeleton crew rife with editor-less student reporters who have trouble with basic grammar. Hard leftist Elvia Diaz, the digital editor of the Spanish language version La Voz, has taken over as director of opinion. Diaz, who entered the U.S. illegally with her family, “will edit The Republic’s Viewpoints section, opinion columnists and guest writers, set the board’s agenda and, working with the executive editor and the board, shape The Republic’s institutional voice.” That should definitely garner more readers.

Another vicious Republican-hater, Yvonne Wingett Sanchez, is now on the radical Washington Post’s payroll in the newly created position of “Democracy Reporter for Arizona,” a job that likely requires dagger-like slashing proficiency.

Greg Burton, the newspaper’s executive editor caved to these demands and responded by reconfiguring the staff according to gender and ethnicity, traits none of us can alter and which have nothing to do with professional skills.

The Republic’s subscriptions have been declining for years, with the majority senior citizen demographic easily identified by the ads for mobility scooters, dentures, hearing aids, erectile dysfunction cures, and walk-in bathtubs as the dead giveaway. It supplements its income by gouging bereaved family members for overpriced obituaries honoring their love ones. Hoping to stay afloat a while longer, the distressed newspaper ran a half-page, full-color ad complete with an exclamation point on its news pages: “Printing Press Operators Needed! $24.68 per hour, plus lead operator pay.” It has also advertised for residential delivery personnel before it makes the financially advantageous switch to an all digital publication.

    The mainstream news industry has worked double time to conceal the ineptitude and criminality of Joe Biden, his son Hunter and Joe’s brother Jim, who all became immensely wealthy with their deals, facilitated by cocaine addict Hunter, who had a seat on a Ukrainian energy board. Hunter, who lacked any relevant experience was reportedly paid $50,000 a month for granting access to his then-Vice President dad. Notice how that story disappeared? The New York Post was the only ethical newspaper that continually headlined and updated the story. The Biden’s should all be in prison, but with the family in control…don’t look for that to happen. Imagine if these facts involved the Trump family? There would be cries for their heads on a platter.

    • Villanova says:

      Many of us agree with your observation that the Trump family would have been hounded, tried and imprisoned for what the Biden’s got away with. Bill Clinton suborned perjury to cover his affair with a teenage White House intern and got off with a slap on the wrist. The Kennedy’s were involved with criminals.

      The Trump family is/was squeaky clean, but they were relentlessly hounded by the left.

    Our family won’t be voting for Recorder Stephen Richer again. We were duped. Richer actually called President Trump, “Unhinged.” Unfortunately, this deceiver has two years left on his four-year term. I hope a solid conservative Republican runs for MC Recorder next time around. Had we known he had previously been a democrat, he never would have gotten our votes.

    The AZ Repulsive is losing subscriptions because it deserves to. I see it occasionally at the breakfast cafe I frequent. There are sections that are available to diners. I get irked just reading a free copy. I’d be enraged if I had paid for the garbage passing as news. It should change its name to Pravda!

  4. Observer says:

    I asked friends and associates if they read the local newspaper. Most said they didn’t even know it was still being published. These are all execs who are in the loop as far as current events go. The AZ Republic is disregarded and considered off the wall.

  5. Ajo Joe says:

    I did an Internet search and was surprised to find that this arm of the democrat party newspaper, was originally known as the Arizona Republican! Imagine that?!?!
