Andy Cross, Denver Submit fileThe Denver Submit’s newsroom is shifting from its downtown location to Adams County this weekend. The newspaper additionally not too long ago started charging for entry to articles on its web site.Re: “As the majority of The Denver Submit leaves town, we’re so over working at no cost,” Jan. 12 Chuck Plunkett column.

Having simply seen “The Submit” with Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks makes me much more of a champion of the free (and never FAKE) press. All of us must pay for this privilege. I’m sorry that some Denver philanthropist can’t subsidize the great work you all do. All enterprise fashions change and the paper shouldn’t be the sufferer of up to date forces — it’s a value of doing enterprise to pay reporters to hunt out the reality. Perhaps the Aurora VA hospital scandal wouldn’t be so dangerous if you happen to may have afforded to shine extra mild on this concern, and so on. It is best to have the ability to keep in Downtown Denver and thrive within the course of.

I’ve loved The Denver Submit’s on-line tales for years and I’m keen to pay month-to-month to maintain these tales. Having stated that, $11.99 comes throughout as extreme. I may perceive as much as $5.99 with some extra micro-transactions if, say, I wished to learn sure sports activities tales (25 cents a pop possibly). The gaming trade has been doing this for years and I by no means understood why the print media didn’t do that very same.

I received’t be paying $11.99 and I’ll miss the tales in The Submit, however new subscriber reductions or micro-transactions would have been a greater strategy. Good luck, I’ll miss you guys.
