Letter to the editor: Shame on PR & Jefferson Star

Shame on PR & Jefferson Star

Received Dec. 20

I am extremely disappointed, but not shocked that the Post Register has decided to jettison the Pioneer after completely wrecking it after purchasing it several years ago. Handing operations of the paper to a bunch of Jefferson Star employees did nothing more than ensure its demise.

The Jefferson Star Office did little to support the paper. In fact they did everything within their power to make it so no one would want to read it. Viewership dropped off as they continued to be defiant toward the community they were supposed to serve.

I have nothing but contempt for the Star in the way they handled this paper. Shame on them and the Post Register in destroying a long-standing paper in one community in order to preserve their own!
