SHHHHH….We’re Not Hacks, We Promise…
September 9, 2008
US Weekly is on the backtracking trail. This whole thing has been done to death, and rightly so. I mean, I would print junk like that too if I didn’t give a damn about, oh, you know, my reputation. But now, Michelle Malkin has a letter from US Weekly that reveals how sorry they are.

Thank you for contacting US Weekly.
We are sorry you are upset over the Governor Palin cover. We do not want to lose you as a subscriber over one article in one issue. In an effort to keep you as a subscriber, we will add five FREE issues to your subscription. Please let us know if you would like us to extend your current subscription rather than canceling our publication.
Damn. So US Weekly readers who are outraged over this gargantuan backhand are supposed to be stupid enough to be bought off with *5*, count em’, *5* FREE issues of this trashy rag? That’s worse than that stupid cover.
