Democrat-controlled media outlet in freefall just added insult to injury with this one mistake

Published

on

Corporate journalism has taken it on the chin.

Left-wing outlets that have been propped up are getting hit extra hard.

And one Democrat-controlled media outlet in freefall just added insult to injury.

Corporate-controlled media companies made a big mistake by pandering to the Left.

The left-wing media ecosystem has been oversaturated, and the editorial bent has been toward the sensibilities of college-educated “progressives,” which is not a big demographic.

As a result, these media companies are collapsing.

From viral to sickly

One such company is BuzzFeed, which announced that it is laying off a big chunk of the workforce and selling off properties.

BuzzFeed was once known for viral trends and stories, but the company’s business model has fractured.

CNN reported that the “$108.6 million sale of much of Complex Networks, which BuzzFeed purchased three years ago for $300 million, came as the company announced it would lay off 16% of its staff ahead of a ‘planned strategic restructuring’ next week to ‘enhance the company’s profitability’ and ‘reduce centralized costs.’”

That means BuzzFeed ate a 63% loss on the property.

BuzzFeed CEO Jonah Peretti said, “The sale of Complex represents an important strategic step for BuzzFeed, Inc. as we adapt our business to be more profitable, more nimble, and more innovative…This is also an opportunity to unlock greater value for the Complex brand by combining it with NTWRK’s expansive, commerce-driven business.”

BuzzFeed and similar companies rode the wave of the digital media boom but have since crashed.

The company shut down its news division, which had several bureaus around the world.

Since BuzzFeed’s IPO in 2021, the stock has lost an eye-popping 98% of its value, currently trading at 21¢.

Even bigger outlets are feeling the crunch.

Legacy institutions not safe

The Washington Post has gone through several rounds of layoffs.

After The Los Angeles Times slashed several divisions, Washington Post reporter Taylor Lorenz ranted, “The entire journalism industry is basically in a freefall. Today, The Los Angeles Times laid off 115 employees. They wiped out their entire DC bureau in an election year. They laid off pretty much all of their sports teams. They killed their entire tech and business section. They laid off breaking news writers, social media editors, the list goes on. But what’s really dark is this is just the latest in months and months and months of layoffs in the media industry. In fact, tens of thousands of journalists have been laid off in the past year. Major media companies like Buzzfeed News have completely shuttered their news operations. Time magazine also just laid off a ton of people and, oh, Sports Illustrated basically shut down last week.”

Sensing the writing on the wall, Lorenz launched her own YouTube channel.

Democrat-controlled media outlets are crumbling, but independent platforms that have built organic viewerships have been able to thrive.

Far-left rag blamed rampant crime on something that will leave you speechless

Published

on

People are getting sick of “wokeness.”

But the Left keep doubling down on it.

And one far-left rag blamed rampant crime on something that will leave you speechless.

In New York City, there has been a recent spate of women randomly getting punched in the face for no reason at all.

Instead of blaming pro-crime policies that put repeat violent criminals back on the streets, the Left decided to blame Donald Trump.

It’s Trump!

The far-left rag Salon published a piece titled, “Men punching random women in NYC: A desperate last gasp of the male rage fueling MAGA.”

That is an embarrassing leap of logic, which is why these outlets are dropping like flies.

BuzzFeed and Vice News are two of many publications that are in freefall.

Salon writer Amanda Marcotte wrote, “These stories resonate, as well, because the nation is having a moment of increasingly unhinged male fury at women for daring to have lives that are centered around something other than catering to a man’s every whim. Unleashed by Donald Trump and the MAGA movement, there’s an upswell of loud male entitlement shouting at us from every corner.”

Marcotte will have to explain why Ghostbusters actor Rick Moranis was randomly punched on the street in New York City.

It turns out that there are a lot of unhinged violent criminals assaulting all kinds of people in deep-blue major cities.

There’s a reason why Governor Kathy Hochul deployed the National Guard to help curtail subway crime.

Everything Trump

Marcotte added that “MAGA pundits [are] telling lies about birth control, in hopes of tricking women into having babies before they’re ready.”

Those “MAGA pundits” would include liberal feminists and medical journals that have detailed the downsides of hormonal birth control and how it has been over-prescribed.

In reality, Salon is desperate to keep its doors open in light of the major “progressive” journalism layoffs taking place.

On that score, Salon succeeded; this nonsensical MAGA-punching article garnered 1.6 million views on Twitter when the average Salon piece only draws a tiny fraction of that.

Marcotte is no stranger to sensationalist stories.

In November 2023, Marcotte likened House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) to Osama bin Laden.

She wrote that “newly elected Republican Speaker of the House, Rep. Mike Johnson of Louisiana, has a habit of expressing America-hating rhetoric that sounds like it could have come straight out of Osama bin Laden’s mouth.”

One of the reasons that Donald Trump is leading Joe Biden in the polls is that Democrats cannot blame their failures on Republicans forever.

At some point, the results matter.

Democrat-controlled media are sweeping this ugly truth under the rug to help Biden

Published

By

Joe Biden is consistently losing to Donald Trump in the polls.

That means the press has to work extra hard for Biden.

And Democrat-controlled media are trying to hide one ugly truth from voters.

Joe Biden is not only losing ground to Donald Trump, he’s falling out of favor with key Democrat voter demographics.

Nonwhite voters, particularly Hispanics, are trending away from the Democrat Party and toward the Republicans.

Losing ground with Hispanics

The trend began in 2020 when Biden underperformed with Latinos and narrowly won heavy Latino counties in South Texas that Hillary Clinton won by huge margins.

Biden’s insistence on crippling the oil and natural gas industry is a big reason why, but it’s also because of incessant “wokeness.”

Latinos, which tend to be a heavily Catholic group, are not big fans of the Left’s over-the-top cultural radicalism.

For example, poll after poll shows that Hispanics despise the term “latinx,” but elite liberals insist on using it.

That is why Spanish-language networks hid the fact that Biden promoted Transgender Day of Visibility on Easter, the holiest day in the Christian calendar.

Suppressing the truth

An anchor for Univision mentioned International Transgender Day of Visibility but left out the Biden administration’s celebration on Easter.

The host said, “And hundreds of protesters marched in the Mexican capital. This, to commemorate the International Transgender Day of Visibility, and draw attention to the discrimination they suffer. Many of them are members of the LGBTQ community and demand a law that protects their rights. And Mexico has recorded four murders of transgender people so far this year.”

Telemundo did the same thing.

No mention of Biden and his administration was anywhere to be found.

The anchor said, “Meanwhile, hundreds of protesters gathered yesterday to commemorate the International Transgender Day of Visibility. During the protest in the capital of Mexico, attendees demanded a law that protects the rights of these people. Many of them, members of the LGBTQ community, marched down the city’s iconic Reforma Avenue, from the Senate building, to denounce the discrimination they commonly face.”

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre and others on the Left argued that Transgender Day of Visibility always takes place on March 31, but the administration went out of its way to acknowledge the pagan holiday on Easter Sunday.

Biden—or whoever is running his Twitter account—mentioned Transgender Day of Visibility multiple times on Easter, as did Jean-Pierre and other members of the administration.

Rachel Maddow proved she wasn’t a journalist when she pulled one unprofessional stunt

Published

By

The so-called mainstream media were furious when Donald Trump called them “fake news.”

They said his rhetoric was “dangerous.”

But Rachel Maddow proved she wasn’t a journalist when she pulled one unprofessional stunt.

In 2016, Hillary Clinton used the phrase “fake news.”

The Democrat-controlled media did not bat an eyelash.

When Donald Trump called CNN and other outlets fake news, the press went ballistic.

They said his rhetoric was an attack on the free press and imperiled journalists’ lives.

Don’t let the people listen

It turns out that the so-called mainstream media did not need Trump’s help lighting their credibility on fire.

MSNBC host Rachel Maddow proved that yet again when she said it was “irresponsible” to show Trump’s victory speech after his rout on Super Tuesday.

After MSNBC cut away from the speech, Maddow said, “Yeah, okay. You know, it is, okay. I will say that it is a decision that we revisit constantly in terms of the balance between allowing somebody to knowingly lie on your air about things they’ve lied about before and you can predict they are going to lie about. And so, therefore, it is irresponsible to allow them to do that. It’s a balance between knowing that that’s irresponsible to broadcast and also knowing that as the de facto – soon to be de facto nominee of the Republican Party – this is not only the man who is likely to be the Republican candidate for president, but this is the way he’s running.”

Surprisingly, MSNBC co-panelist Stephanie Ruhle said, “Well, here’s how we balance it. Why don’t we fact-check the hell out of him?”

That would be the ethical thing to do.

However, Maddow is a paid propagandist.

She is afraid the public might actually hear something that contradicts the Democrat Party narrative.

Maddow responded, “Yes, and we do that after the fact and that is the best remedy that we’ve got. It does not fix the fact that we broadcast it, honestly.”

Maintain the flock

It is amazing that Maddow and other left-wing talking heads believe that they are doing the responsible thing by refusing to air the words of the former President who could become President again in eight months.

MSNBC does not want its viewers informed; it wants them in line.

Maddow and her colleagues are not trying to persuade anyone.

They want to make sure their dedicated viewers are motivated to go to the polls in November.
