Default Re: The Honolulu Star Advertiser

Not all of the online content is available....there are still "stars" attached to certain articles or sections of their website that are only accessable to subscribers.

I thought that perhaps one of the paper's competitors would have pointed this out...as it is not true to say "All Online Access is Free," but I guess not.



Besides, having to sift through typos, misspellings, grammatical errors in the Staradvertiser reports gets old after a while.


This is what can happen when you have only one, major newspaper in town.

Quality suffers.

After the diplomats leave it's back to paywall mode.

BTW, Apple Safari users should add the AdBlock extension to their browser. It effectively kills all of the annoying roll downs, pop ups and pop unders that infect the Star Advertiser site as well as many others. Adblock is the most popular extension for Apple's Safari.
