I recently had the ‘opportunity’ to renew my subscription to one of the local newspapers. The new price was 400% higher than last year. I decided to let it lapse (a no-brainer) but then received a bill for the latest month that was automatically renewed at the higher rate. What gall! When I refused to pay, they threatened collection. More gall! Needless to say, I did not renew my subscription and they will never see another penny from me. Poor management can always slide by when things are going well but when trouble hits, the morons float to the top like drowned rats.
Newspapers are losing revenue.
So they think they can get more from you.
And subscriptions are stopping.
Somebody should read them their news.
