Newspapers have expenses!

The app is fine; the news is OK; The paywall complaints are ridiculous. Apparently, some people think that a newspaper can run for free. Hawai`i needs journalists who will go after the government, corporations, and people dedicated to ripping us off. I, for one, am willing to pay them for that. The only thing I could do without are the puff pieces and other news from other states and countries – I get that elsewhere, already.

Also, I suppose I’m the only one who wishes all sports news would appear on a separate, optional page. I love athletics, but sports news is so commercialized — just take it out of the news feed, enough, already!

Not Very Useful

I have been a print subscriber for over thirty years through a couple of mergers and accessed the digital edition since it became available. The print edition is okay given the state of the industry but the digital edition seems a second thought as most stories are hours old and updates are well after other news outlets have posted the information. Also the Question/Poll of the day no longer works as the link is bad. I noticed that the number of people responding has dropped by several hundred each day so other readers have had the same problem I ran into.

Since my original post the digital edition has gotten worse as the non-print Saturday digital edition is difficult to navigate, riddled with typos, and a challenge to read comfortably. This Saturday I was unable to access the e-edition as I was told I am not a subscriber (I am) and today was told I cannot answer the daily poll question.

The print edition gets thinner by the week and the newspaper’s app is doing poorly on the technological front. I have gone to other online sources for local news and don’t see a bright future for the print edition. Sad times.

Information! Maybe…

Aloha! It’s nice to have information. I’d actually like to have more specific information but, hey, you get what you can find. I often wish that some of the information could pinpoint locations better so I’d know what and where to avoid in my islands home. I often miss the Star Bulletin or HONOLULU advertiser from the old days because I could always count on the true stories about Honolulu and the Hawaiian islands from each of them and I wish that the stories I find in the Star Advertiser weren’t so political but I suppose that the world we live in now is a very different one than all those years ago.
Please help us ask the right questions again. You aren’t supposed to be like fb. Sometimes, people actually CAN accept true stories. Thanks for all the years that you folks reported on really important issues and stories.
