Yesterday Jane and I went out looking for a Wall Street Journal and a New York Times newspaper, along with a Time and Newsweek magazine.
These Newspapers and Magazines were staples in our life growing up.
During High School I fed myself with a local News Paper route. I earned $1 per month for every customer I had – and I started with 30 and ended up with 52. I worked from 3:30 to 6:30pm every day.
I ate well on $52 a month. OK – So I learned what cardboard in the bottom of your shoes was all about – but I ate well.
So we really wanted to see what this entire controversy was about and why the Wall Street Journal and New York Times would convince advertisers to pull their ads form You Tube.
These newspapers and magazines were not found in the grocery stores.
Book stores in Tacoma are gone.
We could not find them in local libraries or in college libraries. All of these outlets that suck off of the Tax Payer are having budget problems since tax revenues are way down.
1) Tax filings have plummeted within the last few years.
2) Business revenues are falling like a rock
3) A record number of folks are no longer paying their property taxes. The folks behind us and in front of us have simply stopped paying their property taxes.
Well – apparently over the last 42 years things have changed.
America is now tired of the lies of the Main Stream Media and these lies are increasing at an ever increasing weight.
As for the Wall Street Journal – Five years ago their Print Circulation was about 2.4 Million – of which 2 Million were given away free. Thus paid subscriptions amounted to around 400,000.
Well – today their subscription is below what some say is one million, and their ad revenue is also plummeting…
