Apparently, Mary Souza has canceled her Coeur d'Alene Press subscription after reading of negative online comments on the Press Web site (including 5 with pseudonyms) in response to her post-election op-ed column from her. In a recent newsletter, she adds this postscript:
I sent in this My Turn column last Wednesday. The Press put it up online within hours, with a quick group of their fiercely negative attack bloggers commenting right away. I ignored their nasty comments and said nothing. After the print edition came out on Friday, I emailed the Press circulation department to cancel our subscription. It felt good not to be supporting the poor journalistic integrity we saw during the campaign and after, and I haven't missed it one bit. Complete newsletter here.
Question: Have you ever dropped a subscription to a newspaper because you were angry with an article of opinion piece?
