Us Weekly now offering “five FREE issues” to outraged readers

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 9, 2008 12:51 PM

Just received from reader Jeff: The latest, desperate plea from Obama’s Palin-bashing backers at Us Weekly magazine to stop the bleeding. (You’ll recall that on Sep 5., I posted the first groveling missive from the rag’s customer service department urging readers to read the smear-filled article before canceling. Oops. Bad advice.)

They are on their knees:

Thank you for contacting US Weekly.

We are sorry you are upset over the Governor Palin cover. We do not want to lose you as a subscriber over one article in one issue. In an effort to keep you as a subscriber, we will add five FREE issues to your subscription. Please let us know if you would like us to extend your current subscription rather than canceling our publication.

Thank you,
US Weekly
