Hate the New York Times? SELL FORD!!!



March 22, 2011 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: F

(F) Lincoln is giving the New York Times Subscription for Free as an offer to customers.
Motley Fool is jumping for joy...while 50% of the rest of the Country is taking a pass.

Is Lincoln offering the Wall Street Journal for free as an option if you do not care for the New York Times subscription?. . .  NOPE!

What about a free subscription to any Conservative Magazine?  As counter balance to the Libreral New York Times?   Nope!

So now it has suddenly become insanely more difficult for Varchild2010 to continue to hold his shares of FORD.

There's the Valuemoney Challenge to hold for 5 total years....

Or.....Sell off the Stock in protest to Alan Mulally becoming the next Rich Guy to BAILOUT the
New York Times.

Hey ALAN if you want to BAILOUT the New York Times then why don't you sell your Shares of Stock you recently received in your company and use the money to purchase the NYT company?

Why not?

Put your own money where your mouth is..... Not your Company's Money!

This is such a stupid comment I don't even know where to begin. Apparently you are some ultra conservative who hate the NYT which is the paper of record in this country. So you take this very mild advertising scheme out on the stock.


UGH. Stupid.


Hoping against hope this is a huge snark.

I am not saying for certain that I am selling FORD...Just expressing my displeasure that Alan Mulally would support the Fishwrap of Record as I decide whether to dump FORD in protest.

P.S.  This action further lowers  FORD's profit margins in an otherwise scary environment.

We have higher OIL pressuring margins as people buy fuel efficient micro-Hot Wheels cars...instead of Trucks/Vans/Minivans/SUVs.

So be aware here of what is really behind the story here...

If they want to BLOW $$$$ like they are then they should have done it us Conservative Automotive Shoppers as well... Not just the Ultra Leftists.

Yes, yes please dump your shares! More people need to so when the price declines I can jump in on some shares. ;)

It is not (ME) that released sensitive information jeopardizing U.S. Security when President Bush was President.

New York Times on the other hand has no issue with publishing stories that potentially could cause our Soldiers to get killed.

New York Times has a history of innacuracy in which they run tons and tons of corrections in their corrections column.

Any talk of a divi, otherwise I don't see a reason to buy here. I stopped paying attention to F when it hit double digits.

True. I sold all my Ford when they originally cut their divi. A knee jerk reaction. I've been kicking myself ever since.

If some other knee jerk reaction senario caused F to tumble back to single digits, I would definately scoop up some shares. One day they'll reinstate a divi.

Btw, not a NYT subscriber.
