Allow readers of the Post-Journal to view full articles without a subscription
- People of Jamestown, New York
- United States of America
In March 2014, the Post-Journal, a newspaper based in Jamestown, New York, began charging viewers to read the online version of their newspaper. Now, one can only view a very short snippet from each article.
For several years, people have been able to read the online newspaper for free. Now, the costs are outrageous ($150 for a 1 year subscription), especially for those who only view partial content and are not interested in "full access."
Additionally, there are several former residents and/or people who are tied to the Jamestown, New York area that want to keep up with what is going on, but are now unable to for free. Those who share articles on Facebook or Twitter or e-mail cannot effectively share articles to those who are not subscribers.
We, the undersigned, call on the Post-Journal to revert their recent subscription changes and allow readers to view articles in their entirety on their online paper for without a subscription, as has been the case in the last several years.
