Opposition to proposed Valassis-Postal Service deal grows
From July 30, 2012:
More than 30 newspaper companies, representing thousands of daily and weekly newspapers, provided detailed responses to the Postal Regulatory Commission's notice of inquiry on the proposed special postage-rate deal (or negotiated service agreement) for Valassis Direct Mail. Newspapers' responses yielded local market data that supported NAA's comments on the notice. NAA's comments also included results of an NAA-member survey on the proposed agreement's potential impact on revenues of both newspapers and the U.S. Postal Service. While media reports have focused on the opposing viewpoints of the newspaper industry and the Postal Service and Valassis, the commission received several responses from other interested parties.
