First Day Without Plain Dealer Home Delivery Sucks

Posted By on Mon, Aug 5, 2013 at 10:47 AM


It's a historic day in Cleveland: That's right, today marks the Plain Dealer's transition to its 3-day-a-week home delivery "model" — an event that was heralded with enthusiasm by exactly no one! Faithful news consumers will now have to wait until Wednesday for a paper at their doorsteps. Though this is a huge bummer for most everybody, at least there's a functioning e-edition in place.

Actually, scratch that.

What a way to inspire confidence in an already tortured, livid audience base.

Via the Cleveland Leader, the e-edition failed to load because "too many people [were] trying to access the paper at the same time." Surprise, surprise. Reports indicate that it's been taking upwards of an hour for the e-edition to load on iPads.

Don't worry folks. While you wait for the pages to load, you can go buy a print edition at your local "newsstand." What better way to usher in the digital age than by perpetuating inconvenience not seen since the roaring twenties? Today's content, produced by a gutted staff, is predictably thin.

But jobless journos, fear not! There are currently eight available positions with the Northeast Ohio Media Group on Apply today to work for this awesome organization with transparent management and a laid back office culture!
