Jann Wenner, the left-wing media mogul who publishes Palin-bashing Us Weekly and Obama-deifying Rolling Stone magazine, is at it again.

I have received several reports that readers or their family members have received free, unsolicited copies of the latest Oct. 2 Rolling Stone issue in their mailboxes. The latest issue just happens to have the headline “The Lies of Sarah Palin” splashed all over it. An excerpt of the PDS-infected Matt Taibbi’s screed:

Palin is a symbol of everything that is wrong with the modern United States. As a representative of our political system, she’s a new low in reptilian villainy, the ultimate cynical masterwork of puppeteers like Karl Rove. But more than that, she is a horrifying symbol of how little we ask for in return for the total surrender of our political power. Not only is Sarah Palin a fraud, she’s the tawdriest, most half-assed fraud imaginable, 20 floors below the lowest common denominator, a character too dumb even for daytime TV — and this country is going to eat her up, cheering her every step of the way. All because most Americans no longer have the base energy to do anything but lie back and allow ourselves to be jacked off by the calculating thieves who run this grasping consumer paradise we call a nation…

…She appeared to be completely without shame and utterly full of shit, awing a room full of hardened reporters with her sickly-sweet line about the high-school-flame-turned-hubby who “five children later,” is “still my guy.” It was like watching Gidget address the Reichstag.

Obama cultist Jann Wenne r is desperately clogging mailboxes, giving this crap away. And it seems they are targeting young people.

Reader Nancy M. in Virginia e-mails:

Dear Michelle – I was surprised to pull Oct. 2 issue of Rolling Stone magazine out of my mailbox day before yesterday addressed to my 20 year old college daughter. I asked her if she had subscribed and she said no. After the US mag cover and hatchet job on Sarah Palin and knowing same person owns both mags, I think this might be a subtle way to influence young 1st time voters in presidential race. We live in Virginia and I have heard it’s a toss up state. Rolling Stone cover headline says “The Lies of Sarah Palin.” Magazine calls her a “tawdry, half-assed fraud.” The article is disgusting. Was this just a random thing or was the magazine sent unsolicited to quantities of young voters?

Reader Jason in Texas e-mails:

I am a resident of Texas. Today I received a free version of Rollingstone magazine in the mail (with my name). I have never subscribed to the magazine. I have only ever subscribed to the Economist and the Wall Street Journal.

The headline at the top (with a cover of Metallica) says “The Lies of Sarah Palin” — inside a hit piece.

Since the guy that owns the magazine is an Obama supporter – is this legal, so close to an election?



Question: Where did they get the mailing list?


Update: Reader Steve has some good advice if this piece of trash shows up in your mail…

Advise your readers to mark in big, block letters (use a black Sharpie pen if you have one), across the front of the unsolicited Rolling Stone magazines received: REFUSED. Place the marked item back into the U.S. Mails, at any mailbox including your own, and the USPS will return the magazine to the publisher, at the publisher’s cost in postage.

You’re allowed to do this with any item received that you did not order, request or solicit, with the postage “reversed” to the sender, whether it says “return postage guaranteed,” or not. As Mr. Wenner, a jerk of the highest order, is wont to send things to people unsolicited, he should be inundated with returned issues of his rag all with “Refused” slashed across their covers — just desserts, indeed! [This from a Rolling Stone reader and subscriber back in the early ’70’s, but not since!].
