SHOCK!!! KANSAS CITY STAR DIGITAL EDITION PRICE SKYROCKETS TO 100 BUCKS FOR MANY SUBSCRIBERS AS PREZ TRUMP CALLS U.S. MEDIA CORRUPT!!!
Dead-Tree media is fighting for survival not only against the Internets but also from constant White House attacks.
Before we get to the fun stuff, here's a bit of local consumer news . . .
KICK-ASS TKC READERS COMPLAIN THAT THE KANSAS CITY STAR IS UPPING THEIR DIGITAL SUBSCRIPTION TO 100 BUCKS!!!
The 26-Week Digital Subscription Package has been widely touted at an affordable option for millennials who want to pretend to be adults and pay for headlines they only check out via social media.
An AWESOME TKC TIPSTER notes:
"Just got my renewal notice from the KC Star. $101 plus change. I just sent my cancellation e-mail."
The money line:
"We appreciate your participation in our convenient EZ Pay program. This notification is to inform you that your new monthly rate will be $101.83 (plus tax- if applicable). This rate change will be effective beginning with your next subscription payment."
And this inspires our question tonight given the smackdown targeting the Reuters reporter . . .
WOULD YOU PAY $100 FOR THE KANSAS CITY STAR OR DO YOU AGREE WITH PREZ TRUMP THAT U.S. MEDIA IS CORRUPT?!?
