Does US Weekly Regret It’s Sarah Palin Bashing?

US Weekly is apparently attempting to stem the flow of subscription cancellations it is receiving in response to it’s slandering of Sarah Palin and her family last week.

The trash tabloid magazine is now offering 5 free issues to disgruntled readers in an effort to keep them. (I discuss US Weekly’s bias in this post from last week). Despite their efforts, I really don’t think we’ll see the last of their political left slant.

I can’t help to laugh at the emails they are sending in reply to these cancellation requests. These two were posted on Michelle Malkin’s blog. As you can see the first one is definitely a stepped up attempt, they must be losing readers by the truckload.

Have you cancelled your subscription yet?

Thank you for contacting US Weekly.

We are sorry you are upset over the Governor Palin cover. We do not want to lose you as a subscriber over one article in one issue. In an effort to keep you as a subscriber, we will add five FREE issues to your subscription. Please let us know if you would like us to extend your current subscription rather than canceling our publication.

Thank you,
US Weekly

  1. Obviously, US Weekly did not learn a thing from the Dixie Chicks.
