TKC MUST SEE!!! DEAD TREE MEDIA DEEP DIGITAL DISCOUNT: WILL YOU PAY 20 BUCKS TO READ THE KANSAS CITY STAR ONLINE???



Here's an offer for all the Internets denizens who don't know how to select private mode in their browsers in order to view content without tracking cookies that limit access . . .

Check the election special from The Kansas City Star . . .



Accordingly . . .

GIVEN SO MUCH ONLINE NEWS . . . WILL YOU PAY 20 SMACKEROOS TO READ THE KANSAS CITY STAR ONLINE OR JUST WATCH TV AND THE FREEBIE INTERNETS LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE???

And whilst the hard right turn of this publication with their endorsements is noteworthy . . . I'm not sure their new GOP friends are going to cough up a fee in return for the favors as this local 4th Estate institution still struggles to find a digital profit model amid declining subscriptions and advertiser revenue.

You decide . . .

Pay to read the KC Star? If I paid a dime a year I couldn't get my monies worth.

they started this offer the same week they dumped yael...as a reward, I went ahead and sent them $20. I'd have paid double that if they'd gotten rid of Mary too.....

The Star has been better lately. Not sure about that "hard right turn," since nearly all syndicated columnists remain either libs or gelded former conservatives (e.g. Brooks). If getting rid of some of the far left editorial board members and columnists is a hard right turn, it's only because the Star had gone so far left that only a hard right turn could bring it back to center. A couple new sections in Sunday's paper seem refreshingly politics free. I may actually renew my subscription.

Tony, as long as you pay and regurgitate the highlights I'm good.

I would consider paying to read the Star again if it would become a real paper again. I don't see that happening, so guess I have an extra $20 to spend on Christmas gifts.

The Star prints outdated news--no need to pay for what I read at other websites days and even weeks before the Star has it.

Fire Snatcheeze and hire Megan Kelly and we can talk. The you can give me $80.00 credit on that last tax deal.

Hey Tony! Why don't you pay the 20 bucks and just reprint it. You are kind of doing that anyway now.

Bob said...

12:58, you're the idiot. I did not say or intend anything about a politics free newspaper. That came from your imagination, which is fertile only because you have shit for brains.

Who in their right mind would pay $20 to read Snatcheeze except a HilLIARy thug?

I have read it on and off for free. Google it and its your fault if you pay and read. If you get a few advertisements for job openings- scroll past and keep reading- free! If you wanna send them a bone for $20 then by all means do so- as long as they keep making everything outsourced to wherever- it will be free. Don't like Mary? Skip! 2020 is the day most media will be gone...

Your lousy twenty bucks isn't going to save a sinking ship.
