NEVER FORGET

...During this Recall Gov. GRAY DAVIS Election the Los Angeles Times has purposely given California Voters:

Misleading Election Polls / Dirty Tricks Articles / Delayed Dirty Tricks Articles

...while it prepares some more for us to digest before the Oct. 7th Recall Election.

...During this Recall Gov. GRAY DAVIS Election the Orange County Register has responsibly given us all 'JUST the FACTS, Ma'am'

...The Orange County Register has recently expanded its circulation. This includes many more Newstands both inside and outside Orange County and...

...SUBSCRIPTION service outside Orange County.

...Your Home Copy will be delivered in a very pretty ORANGE colored plastic sleeve with its Toll Free Customer Service Phone No. printed on it:

...1 877 627 - 7009.

...Since the L.A. Times is not on YOUR side...

...isn't it time for a Change in newspapers...

...just like the one Gov. ARONOLD's going to bring...

...to our wonderful state of California...

...come this October 7th..?

Starting now, Cancel the Times, Get the Register ...4-CLARITY

Cancelled my LA Times sub this morning at 8:00am. The nice lady asked me why and I said I'm tired of the slanted news and I personally think the Arnold article should have been released earlier.

Let's see if we can find out how many other people cancelled.

I've NEVER taken the Times and quite frankly, have enjoyed TELLING THEM SO whenever they call for "even the free one????". Yes, even the free one. NO THANK YOU!

thanks for posting this Ronnie. Everyone who cancels their LATIMES subscription should tell the LATIMES that the money they save on that subscription will be donated to the JoinArnold campaign.

This will send a message.
Terminate the LATIMES!

We need to call into John & Ken at KFI and have them camp out in front of the Times building and convince all 2 million of their listeners to cancel the Times. That might get their attention.

I did this too. I was listening to John and Ken and was irritated about the slanted coverage of the Los Angeles Times.

There needs to be something done. The LOS ANGLES NEWSPAPER GROUP (Daily News, Daily Bulletin, Pasadena Star) needs to come up with a pragmatic centrist paper that could compete against the Los ANgeles Times, local slant yet filled with quality writers.

I switched to the Daily Bulletin for 7 day service (1.75 more than SAT/SUN only for the Times). And I got a free supermarket gift card :)

I think they will probally loose 1-2 thousand readers.

I've read the Register since I was a kid. While their front page is left leaning, I like their editorial staff. The Times recently tried to give us a free trial and started delivering the paper. I called and told them if they didn't stop, I'd report them for littering.

To anyone who doesn't know, the "new" Ikea building off the 405 and Harbor is the old LA Times Orange County facilty revamped to meet the needs of the home furnishings retailer. The Times finally gave up and ran out of the county a few years ago.

The Times building is still there, Ikea was built in front of it. I have a friend who works for the Times (machinist) and they're talking about raising their sign so people will know they're alive.

About that Ikea (Swedish for cheap). I hear it's their largest. Also, if you buy the first item you see when you walk into the door, you still have to follow the path through all three floors to get to the checkout.

I've tried repeatedly to get Register home delivery. I live in Downey, in east central L.A. County. The Register has refused, and has even removed dozens of former "honor" sales boxes in my vicinity. I fear you're talking through your hat.

Isn't it Message Sending Time..?

Some people are a little slow in getting the message themselves. I cancelled my L.A.T. subscription 10 years ago and subscribed to the national weekly edition of The Washington Times. That, along with the internet, keep me up to date on everything important to know. The L.A. Times is a Communist newspaper. That's not an exaggeration.

You'll be interested in this post (supposedly thousands of LA Times subscriptions canceled after the Schwarzenegger hit).

Cancel the LA Times and tell them that you are donating the money you save to Free Republic.

That will drive them even more into the Lunatic Left Depression.

The LA Times sued Free Republic and Jim and tried to shut down Free Republic because we dared to post their lunatic left articles in Free Republic.

Please any freeper who still subscribes to the LA Slimes, cancel it and tell them that you are donating your savings to Free Republic.

I believe that the LA Slimes may be involved in the "drug use" smear of Rush Limbaugh, too. Read my theory in this post.

Re: LA Times

Let's take this a step further. Here's a few ideas for putting these steaming turds out of business.

1. They are filling the mail with postage paid postcards for people to subscribe. They typically come in the mail in these coupon packs. Send in as many as you can with phony subscription requests (real addresses/fake names). Burn them with postage expenses and fake subscriptions.

2. Take the FREE papers and simply recycle them, then cancel when they ask you to subscribe. Give them no cash, but take as much FREE as you can.

3. Tell stores that advertise with them that you are reconsidering you patronage based on their placing ads in the LA Times.

This will drain them of cash and hopefully help put them out of business.

Signed,

a proud non-subscriber for over 15 years

You can get them from the OC Register for about 1.25 or 1.50 (I forget). They pay for themselves. Sorry to hear about your computer job. Hope it gets better soon.

The LA Slimes has to be kidding - who in their right mind would believe they are not the Democrats private newspaper. They are working hand in glove with Grey Davis. They are proving once and for all just how disgusting a Liberal paper can get a few days before an election. Have they no sense of decency. Their Godlessness shows thru loud and clear. Here in the Heartland we saw our Left Wing paper the Red Star Tribune in Mpls. get behind Wellstone by raising a "Scandal" one week before his first election when he beat his Republican incumbent. This time Wellstone followers showed us all just what scum bags they are when the turned Wellstones wake into a Mondale can win rally!!! Win one for Paul was the rallying cry and his body wasn't even cold yet. The good folks in Minn. saw thru that ploy and turned their backs on the Democrats once and for all. The LA Slimes is just the latest example of what these big city papers attempt to do in directing the little guy to vote their interest.

I cancelled my Times subscription about 3 years ago. Before that, I used to subscribe to the OC Register. However, the delivery service never put it in a plastic wrapper on rainy days, so I stopped paying for a soaked copy of the Register.

After taking the Register again for a year, I dropped it as well. They advertise themselves as a Libertarian newspaper. However, they have minimal reporting staff and rely on AP, the NY Times wireservice, Reuters, the Wall Street Journal and others for most of their news stories. Except for the WSJ, all the other sources are left leaning trash. So, ask yourself how this can really be a Libertarian paper. As for the WSJ articles, they were reprints of the same articles I had read in the WSJ three days before.

As for local Orange County news, the Register does a poor job when it comes to reporting what happens in each community. They only cover county-wide issues. The local stuff is left to one small paragraph on one subject in each community.

I found the answer to be to cancel the Times and the Register and get my news on the internet. If you need to, you can access both papers on the internet for free. That way, I get to read the Daily Pilot, a publication of the Times which covers all the happenings in Costa Mesa and Newport Beach. All the national news you need is on Free Republic and other conservative sites.

May I humbly suggest Investor's Business Daily out of Los Angeles. Worth the subscription price for their editorial page alone. Just toss the second section if you are not interested in the market.

...Oh, W-O-W, the new IKEA Home Furnishing Store in Orange County is the old Headquarters for the Orange County Edition of the Los Angeles Times..?

...Doesn't seem to have affected their reporting practices much, does it..?

Outside of Orange County itself OC Register Subscription Areas =

Corona CA
Whittier CA
Cerrittos CA
Chino Hills CA
Diamond Bar CA
and growing.

New OC Register Newstands have popped up all over the Inland Empire.


Buying "The OC" Register each day when you can't subscribe is really worth the effort, like at Southern California BARNEs & NOBLE, BORDERS bookstores and at 7-11's.

You might want to cancel your subscription. If your not sure you have a subscription you may want to cancel anyway. If you're sure you don't have a subscription, remember that you can never be too sure.

"Read the Times, Read the Lies!"

Cancelled my subscription to the Left Angeles Slimes around 1979.

I took my Black Lab, Ranger, to the dog beach a couple of weeks ago. A woman sat down on a towel and set her copy of the Sunday Times in the sand next to her. Ranger walked over and lifted his leg on the Times. I told the woman that I was really sorry, but I don't think she believed me because I couldn't stop laughing!

Good boy, Ranger dog!


Ranger got a nice big treat when we got home!
