To wit . . .
OUR KICK-ASS TKC BLOG COMMUNITY SHARES WORD FROM THE KANSAS CITY STAR OF APOLOGY AND REGRET OVER ONGOING DELIVERY PROBLEMS CONFRONTING SUBSCRIBERS!!!
Our blog community broke news of this tragic situation last year and since that point social media complaints from so many frustrated subscribers abound . . . Our blog community contends that cost cutting efforts, massive layoffs and poor management overall are responsible for the embarrassing newspaper delivery hot mess.
Seriously, if The Star can't even deliver it's signature newspaper product than competing in the far more unforgiving and much faster digital world seems beyond their grasp.
Here's how the newspaper sees it in a recent e-mail that was only intended for a few complaining subscribers but was thankfully intercepted by our blog community in order to share info for the Internets community at large.

Re: KC Star Paper Delivery Problems
Dear valued subscriber,
I want to personally write and let you know about the problems we may have with your paper delivery over the next couple of weeks. I am also aware that you may have had problems ongoing, and for that, I apologize.
The area where you live was being managed by a third party distribution company. As of today, The Star is now managing that area, and is working with the carriers to be sure the papers go out every day. However, we currently do not have a permanent carrier for the route that you live on. We will be contracting permanent carriers on these routes as quickly as we can.
That being said, we are making a commitment to getting you a paper everyday. It may not be at the same time that you are used to getting it, but it will be delivered. If you do not get a paper, please email our VIP team at firstname.lastname@example.org. They are dedicated to making sure you get the best service possible.
The Star appreciates you as a loyal reader and we apologize for these inconveniences, but understand that we are committed to getting better.
Vice President of Audience Development
