SRAZ frequently reminds our readers that the Arizona Republic has deservedly hit hard times. As it became ever more emaciated even prior to becoming homeless, it swapped out longtime more costly employees for ASU journalism students with limited skills though packed with politically correct terminology. A recent report used the touchy feely term “reached out” three times in a single article, with the word “contacted’ relegated to the trash heap. Steering clear of sex-based verbiage, headlines declare “a person was shot,” or “pregnant people” rather than women. Gannett’s stock which peaked at $91.00 on April 6, 2004, has plummeted to record lows, falling to $4.96 at the closing bell on February 26, 2021, providing proof positive that insulting their few remaining readers is not a good business model.
Subscribers began peeling away in record numbers after the ill-advised, presidential endorsement of deceitful Hillary …“despite her flaws.” The editorial board is so bonded to the left, it was unable to accurately gauge the solid support for Donald Trump, who sailed to victory in 2016.
Still it felt emboldened by the election of the two hard-left U.S. Senators Mark Kelly and Kyrsten Sinema for the first time since 1953 when Barry Goldwater defeated Ernest McFarland and Carl Hayden, initially elected in 1926, finally retired from the senate in 1969 at age 91. Hayden was first elected Maricopa County treasurer and sheriff years before Arizona gained statehood in 1912, which underscores democrats’ bonding to political entrenchment.
Newly elected Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly, an open-border proponent with close and lucrative ties to China, is the founder of Giffords PAC, a Second Amendment restrictionist group targeting national Republican candidates, calling for stricter gun controls and vowing to gut what he refers to as “the gun lobby.” His fellow former astronauts blistered Kelly. Following Sinema’s deceptive path, slickster Kelly made no mention of his party affiliation in any of his campaign ads.
The two Republican members of congress the radical newspaper is currently targeting are Paul Gosar (CD4) and Andy Biggs (CD5) who serve alongside fellow conservatives David Schweikert, (CD 6) and Debbie Lesko (CD8). There was no ire expressed when a democrat candidate who lost her medical license due to deadly medical malpractice, carpetbagged across the Valley from her Glendale residence to run in a Scottsdale/Fountain Hills district against Schweikert, losing yet again, as she deceptively wore medical scrubs in her ads with a stethoscope around her neck.
In Sunday’s edition, Biggs rated multi-pages of abuse. Gosar, Schweilert and Lesko have all received similar contrivances, while their deceptive democrat counterparts, get the kid glove treatment. This morning editorialist Elvia Diaz haughtily advises Republican Maricopa County Attorney Allister Adel to drop all charges against 15 violent BLM thugs, “to prove she’s not like…her Republican predecessors.”
Columnist E.J. Montini, a shill for the democrat party, feigns opportunities to deceitfully accuse Republicans of “voter suppression.”
The radically leftist Arizona newspaper never devoted a single word to Joe Biden being caught in cash for influence scandal which was initially exposed by the New York Post and further substantiated when son Hunter’s incriminating laptop revealed even more corrupt connections.
Help put the deceitful newspaper out of its misery. If you still subscribe to the Trump-hating, conservative-loathing Arizona Republic, it’s past time to cancel. Call 1-800-332-6733.
