Excellent content, but some access issues

I have enjoyed print subscription for a few years, but I have had some difficulty with accessing the online Week. It does not say anywhere whether print includes online or not. The online site can’t give any details. Subscription offers also do not clarify this. Wonder why they can’t clarify this simple thing.
Lately I have accessed the online magazine, though occasionally access log-in has been complicated and frustrating.
As far as magazine’s content is concerned it is excellent. We look forward to every issue and do read it regularly.
One other problem of note is that there are usually some delays in receiving the print issues. I think it is probably a fault of the magazine itself since I don’t have similar problem with other subscriptions. Maybe the Postal Service is partly to blame. That has been a little sore point of this subscription.

The Week Has Followed all Other Media Off s Cliff

The Week used to be a fantastic publication. It was actually well balanced. Ever since a certain election in 2016 though, the Week began a steep nose dive where they followed other news outlets on a hard bank to the left. Now it is literally just another talking head for the all woke, no joke media. Obviously, they are going to remind people of other publications since it is literally a synopsis of other publications. However, leftist sources are now quoted seemingly four times for every one moderate or conservative publication. Sadly, I just said goodbye to my subscription after twelve mostly good years as a reader (well probably only eight of those years were good). Maybe if they ever grow a pair and stop throwing up their hands to the woke digital lynch mob I will consider resubscribing. Unfortunately, the more likely outcome is that I will be called a bigot because I don’t want to read their propaganda anymore. Either way, I’m not subscribing to crap that claims to be balanced and instead rams a partisan line down my throat.
