July 31, 2017 issue

I just received the July 31, 2017 issue. To say I'm disgusted is an understatement. Since when is it OK for People magazine to bash on a President and his family? There's always mushy love fests written about President Obama and his family. If they insist on doing...

I have never commented about anything online but felt the time was right. Disgusting article on Mr.

Trump and his family. It was so biased and hateful.

My God, People, he is the President of the United States. I will never read this trashy magazine again and have cancelled my subscription.

Article on President Trump and his family

I was really disappointed at the cover of your magazine and the nasty comments about President Trump and his family. I always thought your magazine presented something close to the news and, since I never read anything about Hillary Clinton and her escapades, I figured...

After insinuation how sinister the Trump family is by your cover, one might assume you would provide at least some evidence of such in the body of the article. Instead you just insinuate and assume and explain how you don't like Trump himself listing some of the well known and by no means proven controversies.

Let me see if I have it right. Trump is a tough, ruthless businessman who has been successful at the expense of those around him, who you presume expects his children to to tough and and ruthless as well. Newsflash everyone!

I suspect no other billionaires are tough, ruthless businessmen who expect a lot of their children.

Surely Trump is the only one in history.

I could see putting this partisan *** piece somewhere in the back pages, but on the cover? Must be a slow news week even for the likes of People Magazine.

Update by user Jul 20, 2017

I hope this review went out. I am agreeing with other 'pissed off' reviewers as to the quality of stories and coverage that PEOPLE Magazine has lost.

Original review posted by user Jul 20, 2017
I am so unbelievably shocked that ANY journalist or EDITOR could even think of placing such libelous (true or not), un-American (tearing apart a sitting President and family) 'story',on the cover of a national magazine. This is the usual,"grab 'em", the reading public, with a shocker headline, then give mealy mouse "facts' that don't back up anything. You KNOW any of these 'charges' (or MUCH worse charges) could be made about SO many past President in history - - let's start with Bill and Hillary, then on to what we never knew about Nixon, FDR and Stalin in WWII, on and on. Can you imagine having your cover during President Obama's terms stating derogatory, insulting info about his illegitimacy, 'colorful' upbringing and process of how he got from there to Harvard? ANYONE can make THAT story into a sleazy, negative tabloid story. But did anyone??? Of course NOT!! He is a Democrat and liberal. No matter your politics, Trump IS our PRESIDENT - yours and mine. I didn't like, agree with what he did, or support President Obama, but he was my President for 8 years. I respected the OFFICE AND his FAMILY. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED - - disrespecting 1) the Presidency of our country 2) the millions of Americans who voted for him and 3) violating what used to be journalistic integrity. I wish to be a PROUD American - - which is so VERY hard today, as the ultra-negative press is tearing our hard fought for freedom of "the unbiased news' to shreds. Our enemies are laughing , sitting back and watching us tearing ourselves apart. YOU SHOULD BE ASHAMED ! P.S. I have not renewed my subscription

i too was appalled at july 31 People magazine. I will never subscribe again to People.

When at grocery store check out I was going to turn around People but to my delight someone beat me to it.

Tired of the swamp and let Trump get down to the BUSINESS of government. Bye bye Russia B.S.

#1352962

This was an AMAZING letter that you wrote to this "has been" magazine! You spoke so much truth that I commend you.

Enough is enough. And if they are going to slander the president and his family then it is only fair that you do the same to the Clintons and the Obamas and discuss all of the negativity and Corruption that goes along with them!

You are no better than the MSM and all of the other liberal Outlets out there. Journalism is dead!

#1352808

I saw your review...right after I cancelled my subscription. I can't believe the cover and I can't the article. A horrible, biased opinion piece that I can't believe they chose to publish.

Disappointed

People Magazine has really gone down hill. I've been a subscriber since the beginning and the magazine has become super light and it once contained some good articles. Who cares what a celebrity has for breakfast, lunch, and dinner? There's a political bias - with no balance. Lightweight stories if you want to call them stories. For the first time I'm seriously thinking of dropping this subscription. Really disappointed in what the magazine has become - definitely not as good as it once was. I've noticed this for a while now - maybe a year? My once "must read" is now a magazine to toss. Lightweight media would be a kind way to put it.

Canceled subscription 1 day after ordering

I ordered then changed my mind the next day because the cost was too high! They charged my card twice for the same amount $90.58 each time. I emailed and complained...they refunded 2-3 weeks later one payment of $90.58. 2-3 weeks later they sent me some kind of vip package that i never ordered and the 2nd refund they gave me was for $61.05! They said because they sent me the vip package that I didn't ask for or order, that was the extent of my refund! I told them i would gladly give back the ridiculous vip package that i never wanted (i live in Florida and it included a scarf and gloves!!) if they would tell me where to send it back and give me back my $30.00!! I will NEVER read nor order this magazine again!! This is ridiculous!!

Horrible customer service

I was a People subscriber for many years. Ordered my latest renewal and they charged me for the 2 year instead of the 1 year which I ordered. After tow unanswered emails I decided to cancel. I did that online and also emailed customer service. No response. So I did it again and did finally get a respect and then a refund a few weeks later. Two weeks after that I received a bill for a past due amount. I emailed them and also wrote a letter and sent that with my bill notice. I never got a response from either. Just logged on today and it looks like it was cancelled and I don't owe anything. Why did I have to jump through a million hoops just to cancel a subscription? And what is the point of emailing customer service if all emails go unanswered. I've sent an email to the editor complaining and to customer service as well. Now I will put negative reviews everywhere I can. If you subscribe make sure you look closely at your bill. It seems like it is common for them to charge you for the most expensive subscription.

People Magazine Feb 6, 2017 issue

I am a Conservative/Republican female. I have had a subsription for people magazine for many years. This is the inauguration issue and President Trump could not be found until page 52 with the opposite page with photo of the march with the caption of a nation divided. I was so angry that words cannot even express my disgust with People Magazine. For 8 years I have had to look at President Obama and Michelle Obama's pictures throughout the issues. I never cancelled my subscription. I have now and will encourage any fellow Conservatives/Republicans to do the same. Your magazine is extremely liberal and biased. You insult all the Conservative/Republican patrons that have supported your magazine for many years. Hopefully you will lose so many subscriptions that you can no longer publish this despicable ***. Maybe you should contact Hollywood to fund you or maybe Oprah Winfrey, possibly Ashley Judd or perhaps Madonna. Oh I forgot Madonna is probably too busy talking about blowing up the White House. Hollywood is getting ready to take a dive. You will not have anyone to write about because many of us no longer care!!!!!

I am having the exact same issue. Then they said a fluke cancelled my subscription and they wanted a credit card if I wanted my subscription reinstated.

Also told me it would be more money all of the sudden to get my digital content. Been a subscriber for almost 30 years

People Mag is unfair to our new president-elect

I thought People mag tried to be neutral and unbiased, but I have been proven wrong. In the 15 years I have been a subscriber never have I seen a more slanted view than your articles about Mr. Trump. The new president-elect deserved to be on the cover of the issue following the election, but instead I saw the "sexiest man", that was a direct insult to all the conservative Americans who voted for Trump. Now I see a tribute to Obama, who I feel was one of the worst presidents America ever had. You have lost me as a subscriber, I see how liberal and slanted you are, and I can no longer support such an anti-American magazine.

Oct. 31 issue bashing Donald Trump

I am a very long time subscriber to People magazine. Two weeks in a row they have bashed Trump due to his comment in a private conversation p,us a full page of women and their complaints. I am disgusted that they find space for this but not for the lies and criminal activity of Hillary Clinton. In addition, as a woman who is educated, owned two businesses, traveled widely and was fairly attractive in my youth, I can state that any woman traveling on an airplane alone who is not able to protect her space is a total ***. In meetings with men who make advances you have the ability to take care of yourself if you want to. If you flirt and lead someone on or allow advances that was your choice and you were the *** one. It is ridiculous to give magazine space to this drivel and I am about ready to cancel my subscription if this *** continues. You note I am not talking about a woman being hatred, accosted or certainly raped but an *** that can't protect her space on an airplane has no sympathy from me....besides she is a liar, works for the Clintn Founsation as a secretary and there is a photo of her with Hillary...lisp much for honest journalism. I'm disgusted!

I felt the same way when I read the articles. Very surprised they would be so one-sided.

I don't read it for news..rather as a fluff mag. I like to see celebrity features ect. When my subscription is done..

will not renew. Shame on People mag!

#1232879

I totally agree! My subscription runs out next month, and I will never subscribe nor buy again.

It's not just the Trump issue, but over the years it seems the only "People" they want to write about are celebrities.

I used to enjoy their articles about everyday, normal people and heroes.

I could care less what celebrities wear to "fund raisers", how many calories they consume a day, how perfect their homes and relationships are...and I certainly don't want them to tell me how to vote!

Just like the MSM, they just don't get it. I'm sure they will do just fine alienating half of their subscribers.
