The plastic cover on today's issue has contact information that it swears I can use if I want to stop delivery. However, given that I've demanded that they stop delivery at least a half-dozen times in the past, you should not assume that you can rely on these instructions to stop deliveries to you. Take my word for it. They really do not seem to care.
|Don't believe what you read, except that part about choking hazard.|
If I were to venture a guess on why they do not really care about your wishes, I would say that they probably pad their dropping circulation numbers with the free Wednesday edition to convince advertisers to continue to buy space. Hence, their own "free" edition is probably false advertising.
And speaking of advertising, they did not even include any semblance of news in the product they dumped at my stoop despite the screaming "Local News Inside" line on the plastic packaging, which carries with it a choking hazard warning for children.
|I wonder if I should return the ads to Kroger and the Scientologists and ask them to stop?|
So, what I gathered from the Tennessean fetched from my property is that news is now advertising to them. They're throwing junk mail and they're throwing it around neighborhoods in packaging that can be hazardous to neighborhood kids who might pick it up.
The Tennessean might be able to hold on to and pay its reporters if it would cut its executives' obscene salaries instead of junking up our community in the futile attempt to maximize ad sales revenue. They're not generating any good will here by breaking littering laws and wasting resources.
