We have bought the Arizona Republic since we moved from California two years ago. We were disappointed when you recently endorsed Hillary Clinton. Your journalistic responsibility is to report the news. Instead, you have chosen to announce your bias for a morally and ethically bankrupt and incompetent liar. It is my choice to never buy your paper again. Maybe Donald Trump is right about the press. You should have just stayed neutral.
I am PROUD of the stand that my local paper has taken. Citing a clear and fact-driven opinion has convinced me to re-subscribe to the paper, to support our reporters, whether I agree or not with the content. Without a free and open press, we no better than a dictatorship, oligarchy. Those who have said that because of your endorsement, they are cancelling are only wanting to hear what they want to hear. We already have Fox news for that. Our newspapers must factcheck their info and report what they have found. The editors have the immense responsibility to be thoughtful in their opinions. We do not have to agree, but we should respect our local newspeople and support their right to report.
Bravo to you and your entire staff. For a conservative newspaper to take the brave step of realizing that the Republican nominee represents no one but himself, and is a prime example of everything bad about America, and endorsing the only qualified candidate is extraordinary. From the comments, is seems that your "loyal" following are only loyal so long as you feed them a constant stream of what they want to see. They can get that from the "entertainers" on their favorite TV network. For those of us with working brains capable of critical and independent thought, thank you. Please continue to follow the path of real journalism, even if it doesn't serve the paper's best interests.
I live in michigan ....i was greatly impressed by the courage of the staff in standing up to threats,and intimidation by people who dont have a clue ......i want to subscribe for a 1 year subscription ....
I have not been a customer of your newspaper for several years, but interestingly enough, you seem to want my business again! Now that I learn that you have endorsed HIllary for Pres, I am certainly not interested in re-subscribing.
Hard to cancel this yellow rag. They've made it that way.
I have been trying to cancel my subscription for a couple of weeks and somehow every day I have another paper at my door. I have tried repeatedly to call but am always on hold for at least 45 minutes before having to hang up. I have also received multiple calls per day from AZ Republic who always hang up on me as soon as I answer. The couple times I was able to speak with someone they told me that they could not cancel for me, then hung up. The multiple calls per day are very disrupting during work and verging on harassment. I have even tried cancelling on-line but still receive a paper daily. I was not particularly happy with the paper to begin with but after the Hillary Clinton endorsement, I want nothing to do with this establishment. Can someone please help me get through the proper channel to cancel???
Please cancel my subscription. Your endorsement of the wicked witch makes me ill :(
Your newspaper is despicable! Consider my subscription cancelled! My family and I will have nothing to do with your organization.
Tired of reading this liberal left wing paper. I am canceling my subscription especially after they endorsed Hillary......
Goodbye AZ Republic. I have been reading the Rep since 1965, but you have been losing me for the last ten years. Your endorsement of Hillary finally did it. That you would endorse a lying, dishonest lawbreaker with no concern for the current conditions in the US sickens me. We cannot have another four to eight years of business as usual. I am tired of Montini referring to the universal us when he writes one of his diatribes. Don't sit in judgement of me Ed. Look to yourself when you are pointing fingers. Linda Valdez, they are ILLEGAL aliens not immigrants. Yell at Congress so Mexicans, Guatemalans, etc can get green cards and come here legally. Benson most of your cartoons are so left leaning it is rediculous. Can't you find some middle ground, ever. By the way canceling my subscription has not been successful. I just got hung up on again.
I read and cancelled your bias paper 25 years ago. it is not even good enough to line the bottom of bird cage with. You and the ch 12 liberals that are in the same building are both losers. they also do not have any viewers either after coney ( ceo of ch 12 ) killed the guy in his boat( drinking related ) and it was hushed up and swept under the rug very quickly just as the Clintons incidents aren't brought up.YOU AND CH 12 ARE GOING DOWN TOGETHER .
Maybe you and your editorial board should go back to college, hugh school, or use a dictionary to rediscover what reporting the need means. I don't need, want or desire to hear your biased opinions. This electoral year has shown how biased the media is, printed, electronic and TV and radio. I also love the photos you choose to print of Trump. Always distorted face, never that of Clinton. Please report the news and stop giving your opinion.
Sorry but I cannot subscribe to a newspaper that would endorse corrupt/lying Hilary Clinton! Anyone else who would of done what she did by using a private server for classified government information and then delete the emails to cover up her wrong doings would be in Jail! You can't tell me that Billy "Man whore" Clinton didn't make a deal with the attorney general on the tarmac at Sky Harbor airport!!! Also she let 4 Americans die and as she stated "What difference does it make"! Seriously, this is someone you are endorsing to run our country.... Shame on you Az Republic...
For several years, I have been getting disgusted with the strong left attitude of the likes of Montini, Roberts and Benson. With the Editorial Board now bowing to the likes of Clinton it is about time to end my relationship with the Republic that goes back over 40 years. If Clinton is elected we can kiss the true America goodbye. Institutions like the Republic will be to blame. I wonder how much the Clinton Foundation is supporting this move.
I will never buy another Az Republic paper because you are endorsing Hillary.
shame on you for endorsing corruption and lies.
"Journalistic Reporting" is a principled approach to researching, documenting and presenting news, with rigorous striving to convey factual, fair, disinterested, unbiased, nonpartisan, non-partial fact. It's been evident to me that over time such principles are taken less and less seriously across the content of the AZ Republic. Without the rigor, the trustworthiness.of the published info is brought into question, and is therefore not dependable. I have continued my subscription for far too long now.
So thank you for your formal Hilary endorsement, "coming out party"... On so many levels, It has validated my concerns, and helped me cut the cord.
When I went to school, Journalism was about gathering the facts about anything worthy of reporting and present it in an UNBIASED way. With the latest endorsement of Hillary Clinton I believe the Az Republic overstepped their UNBIASED position and used their platform to overly influence voters in Arizona for Hillary. Instead of putting a HUGE picture of her on the top of the front page and calling it HISTORICE ENDORSEMENT, they could have very nicely placed it as they did in the OPINION area taking up as many pages as they felt necessary to announce their decision, of which I believe they are entitled to do in our free country.
Well, now we know who all the crazy people are that are Donald Trump supporters. He is a lunatic and has absolutely zero experience so your newspaper did the absolute correct thing to endorse the person who is qualified to lead this country and not destroy it. This is not a joke, people. I have never been a subscriber but I would like to sign up for as many subscriptions as I possibly can. Can someone let me know how to do this? This newspaper deserves incredible support for taking a stand to preserve democracy.
I was always under the impression the newspaper was supposed to report the news, but I guess I was wrong. You don't hear any television or radio stations telling you who to vote for. Maybe it's time for this out of touch and outdated form of communication to go away.
Totally agree. I will be canceling my subscription first thing in the morning!!
Today for the first time in along time was a day I wished I was a customer just so I could cancel my subscription!! TheEndorsement for Hillary is a disgrace! Keep in mind, Arizona is still a conservative state, I hope this decision puts you out of business! Then maybe all of you can go work for the crooked lying thing that she is!
Cancel my subscription... You endorse Hillary and I no longer believe you will be a fair and honest newspaper.
Cancel my subscription. Your Editorial Board's endorsement of Hillary is the final blow. PMT will be stopped.
