Can kicked slightly further

I wasn’t all that surprised to find a Washington Post app on my tablet; the tablet came from Amazon, and Amazon chair Jeff Bezos is the owner of the WaPo through his Nash Holdings operation. Six months, no charge. This is the follow-on deal offered me:

We hope you are enjoying your 6 months of free access to The Washington Post. Your limited-time trial will expire on June 17, 2016.

In order to continue enjoying the same access to The Washington Post, we would like to offer you the following special subscription rate: 6 months for only $1.00. Once your 6 month promotion comes to an end, your subscription will continue to renew for just $3.99 monthly.

Since Amazon has been dealing on lots of things, even sacred Prime, lately, I suspect the price this December might actually be a tad less than $3.99. I mean, I wasn’t expecting any kind of discount at this point.

    Some discount. For a dollar you could have owned Newsweek.

    They should offer YOU a dollar every time you spend few priceless seconds of your life reading their crap

    Newsweek, in its long and non-illustrious history, has seldom been worth bothering with.

    Only because you didn’t buy it.

    I must say that the Post has always been garbage.

    When the Times isn’t busy shilling for Hillary or clutching its pearls over the idea that Mexicans might have to fill out some paperwork to get welfare benefits, they often publish worthwhile stuff.

    The Post? Never happen, never will.
