Remember 9/11 with a $9.11 newspaper subscription or renewal


This was published in today’s Starkville (Miss.) Daily News. “Who thought this was a good marketing promotion?” asks David Garraway, a Mississippi State University employee. Daily News publisher Don Norman was out for lunch when I called for comment. (Update: I’ve called him three times now.)

ALSO: I see on the Daily News website that a one-year home delivery subscription is $106, which is $8.83 a month. So readers are paying more for the 9/11 “special.” (Update 2: The Daily News receptionist tells me that readers normally pay $13 when they’re on a month-to-month plan.)
