FAKE NEWS D. M. REGISTER HIKES SUBSCRIBER PRICE 40%!!

12-22-17

Greetings D. M. Register Editorial Board and all—

Please forward this post to Corporate Officials and Barbara Smith, VP Customer Service.  Thank you. 

In her 400 word letter to price abused Register subscribers, Barbara Smith ignored explaining the 40% ($36 to $50 per month) subscriber price increase just announced by the Register.  She also ignored the federal tax cut just enacted by President Trump. She didn’t claim anything about the register was improved or better—and it isn’t!!   And of course she didn’t wish anyone a Merry Christmas.  Robber barons don’t do that!!  She rather reported fake news, such as these examples.

“We know how much you appreciate receiving your subscription to The Des Moines Register and the enjoyable reading experience it provides you every day.”  Comment:  Barbara doesn’t “know” that at all, and doesn’t care!!  And she didn’t say how she knows that. How come?

Our journalists are proud to serve our local markets, ensuring that all sides of the story are told.”  Comment: No bias at the Register!  Good thing it isn't summer or there would be a lightning strike in her area. 

We are committed to providing you the daily printed reading experience you have enjoyed over the years, but we need your support.”  Comment:  Blindly send money!!  The Regi$ter is $hamele$$!!!

Since Barbara refused to explain the causes of the blatant 40% price increase, Iowalive net workers once again stepped up to fill the void, with the following table.
