Why I cancelled my Cape Cod Times subscription today

Despicable conduct by Rupert Murdoch's Cape Cod Times
Coakley Sweeps Endorsements From Brown's Hometown Newspapers

Attleboro Sun Chronicle Backs Coakley, Joins MetroWest Daily News

Also Endorsing Coakley this weekend are the New Bedford Standard Times, Springfield Republican, Berkshire Eagle, and the Daily Hampshire Gazette.
   Both newspapers from Scott Brown's home turf have now endorsed Martha Coakley for U.S. Senate. The Attleboro Sun Chronicle endorsed Coakley Sunday, joining the MetroWest Daily News that endorsed Coakley on January 10th.
  In its editorial endorsement, the Attleboro Sun Chronicle wrote that "Our choice of Coakley may be surprising to some. Her major opponent is state Sen. Scott Brown, R-Wrentham, a local figure we have endorsed in the past for state Senate.
   The New Bedford Standard Times wrote that "if voters want forward movement, not gridlock, Coakley is the best choice..... see source.

I just wanted to let you all know that today we cancelled our long-time subscription to the Cape Cod Times - due to their inability to cover the local news and their inability to report fairly on this upcoming Special and Crucial election.

I would request that you let everyone on your extensive email lists know

  1. that not one word was printed about yesterday's Coakley rally in Hyannis in today's (MLK Day of Service) edition of the Cape Cod Times, and
  2. to urge each and every person to cancel their subscriptions as well.

Writing letters to editor and/or ombudsman wouldn't hurt either - although I doubt they will print any of them, just as they chose to omit the letters in yesterday's and today's edition that most likely were in opposition to their endorsement of Mr. Brown.

The word I used Monday morning after searching for the article and pictures of yesterday's Coakley rally was "despicable"! No other word describes their editor's intentional actions.

Five Cape Cod State Representatives and the the President of the State Senate were at the rally which The Times ignored.

Thank you for spreading the word... and here's to Martha Coakley - may she win across the state, despite others' negative wishes!

Vote Democrats!
