Schizophrenic leftist newspaper on Jan. 19, heralded Biden calling Russia’s troop escalation against Ukraine, “a small incursion.” Today, it banner headlines, “Russia attacks Ukraine”
It’s no secret the Trump-despising, Hillary-endorsing, Biden-supporting, Arizona Republic has been hanging on by its fingernails. SRAZ has written numerous posts on the failing newspaper, but this one, “AZ Republic reneges on subscribers third time since Sept.” dated December 30, 2021 sums up the dire condition that has put it on life support.
Having run out of excuses for non-deliveries of paid-for editions, the hemorrhaging subscriptions newspaper has come up with another act of desperation: blaming the lack of people willing to deliver the skewed news. It will soon join this stunning-but-incomplete list of defunct newspapers.
This is the most recent notice bearing the bold type, all caps title:
NOTE TO READERS:
The Arizona Republic is committed to providing on time and regular delivery to our valued home delivery subscribers. Regrettably, the effects of the current job market are severely impacting operations.
We have been working harder than ever to work through these challenges and we ask for your patience during this time.
If you know someone who could use extra income, please refer them to us. Our delivery drivers are independent contractors who deliver across the Valley and state. We have routes available (naming several Arizona locations). We are offering a credit on subscriptions if a referral is contracted on a route. (Contact information is given.)
The fact is, this is a ruse. A purveyor of conservative loathing and disinformation, the newspaper’s only hope for survival is to discontinue the much more expensive to produce and distribute hard copy editions and go all digital. A headline pleads: “5 digital benefits of a subscription,” with the desperate hate-mongers in charge deceptively pledging, “you can play a vital role in supporting local journalism that you and your community can trust.”
This is the same newspaper that encourages auto-pay rather than monthly bills, which they are now imposing a $5 monthly fee for mailing. Do your credit cards, utility companies or others who bill you impose a separate charge for the bill? Desperation leads to lunacy. Leftists are demonstrably unstable. They are also treacherous.
Tired of having your intelligence insulted? If you still subscribe, cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733. Not only is it liberating, you’ll save a bundle of money that can be put to better use.
