This line in the Oregonian’s announcement confused me and others, and led me to believe that the paper will be delivered three days a week, with the Saturday paper delivered on Sunday: “Home delivery will be Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, and include the Saturday edition as a bonus.” I called publisher Chris Anderson and he said the paper will be delivered to homes four days a week.BUT… this is what his announcement says: “Those home delivery subscribers that choose the three-day subscription option will also have access to a digital edition seven days a week.”
Will somebody please inform the corporate weasel-speak writers of the world that EVERYONE ALREADY KNOWS THE INTERNET IS ALWAYS ON? A digital edition seven days a week? You mean you don’t unplug this thing at dusk? Well, slap my ass, Irma, we’s gonna read us an Internet on Sundays, too!
