I don’t. If you are referring to the State Paper, their reporting is so slanted….and the only good things about it, they removed. (and I do mean you). I cancelled my subscription.
Thanks for your support!
My big fear is that with electronic - they can change the words - go back and ‘fix’ the news. I still get the paper delivered and wish I had more time to read it. Our seventh graders read an article each week and summarize and react. They want to use electronic - but I ask them to stick with the old black, white, and read! Keep up the good work.
For years, I have had the luxury of a career and schedule that have allowed me and my bride to enjoy a leisure breakfast, listening to either the morning team on WIS RADIO, NPR or 92.1 AND READING MY STATE NEWSPAPER FROM CIVER TO CIVER as my dear old pappy used to say! In other “words”, getting the complete story on many stories I may have heard of in sound bites, other news and info on a host of topics, editorials,commentaries and letters that often offer a different and compelling perspective AND that sometimes irk me, yeah, and speaking of “irk”,THE STATE really “irked” me when they separated themselves from the genius of Robert Ariail,but to continue, some deep laughs and even thoughtful moments from the “comics”, the challenges for me created by the crossword puzzles,being captivated by the extraordinary photos captured by the extremely skilled photojournalists at THE STATE, just to mention a few of the reasons we have subscribed to THE STATE for years and years, and by God, hope to be able to for years to come lest this scourge of uncontrolled, uncensored, unprofessional and really dangerous internet garbage infiltrates and becomes the norm! And for some people to say that they cancel their subscription because of thinking a paper is too biased or slanted or too Communistic or too Republican or too Democratic or too Clemson or too Carolina or not to their way of thinking is so absurd as to be laughable if not so sad in that they must lack the intelligence or emotional balance to ascertain and/or differentiate fact from what may be fiction or bias and by doing so giving in to their own ignorance or bias rather than maybe learning something for a change! Oh well, I feel so much better while I think I made my stand rather clear as to why I honestly pray that newspapers and especially THE STATE will not be devoured by the disembodied, cold and robotic spectre of the webpage, the tweeties, the facebookies and who knows what other amazing digital doodads and daily-creationed creations to “get the word out”! Geez, Louise…had me the laptop to put in the bottom of the birdcage. Joy and Agape’…Joe Pinner
Oops…”the luxury…..that “has” allowed…….sorry! Joe
Well stated, Mr. Pinner!
