Journalists are panicking after passage of a new California law that appears to make freelance writing impossible to do. “Everybody is freaking out,” says Tim Pool. No doubt, the law will get fixed over time. But the mess could last awhile. Liberals have never been especially practical or concerned about the people over whom they run roughshod. Perhaps it’s poetic justice,though, to see journalists bear the brunt of Liberal shenanigans.
Vincent James of The Red Elephants discusses the continuing drive by YouTube to quash or even outright ban conservative channels. Not only has The Red Elephants been kicked off the platform for a period of time, but also: Owen Benjamin, Know More News, Red Ice TV, Sinatra Says, Brother Nathanael, Lift the Veil, Jake Morphonios, even Steven Crowder for a spell. Most have eventually resurfaced on YouTube, although the constant censorship struggles have left many of us to do our searching these days on alternate sites. We primarily use Bitchute,while some prefer Gab, Rumble or Minds.
Meanwhile, Verizon has been seeking to sell off the Huffington Post, a move which will likely result in layoffs regardless of the result. The company is seeking to slim down its digital media business at a time when many media companies are facing shortfalls, budget cuts, and layoffs.
CNN, VICE, BuzzFeed, Verizon, Disney and more have faced declining viewership, ratings and revenues for the past few years. This is just another trend is the downfall of leftist and far left digital media. At the same time, conservative media seems to be seeing a resurgence with Fox News doing particularly well in growth and ratings.
This all follows a trend of companies basically following “get woke go broke” as a business plan. Vice, for instance, used to be edgy and taboo but now follows the establishment political orthodoxy. Not too long after getting woke they started to go broke. Vice News sadly has merged with Viceland after being canceled on HBO. More from Tim Pool.
