I Always Enjoy Good News

Nice to see that ESPN continues the march towards extinction:

ESPN President John Skipper shared this message with employees this morning.

Today we are informing approximately 150 people at ESPN that their jobs are being eliminated.

We appreciate their contributions, and will assist them as much as possible in this difficult moment with severance, a 2017 bonus, the continuation of health benefits and outplacement services. They will also appreciate your support.

The majority of the jobs eliminated are in studio production, digital content, and technology and they generally reflect decisions to do less in certain instances and re-direct resources.

We will continue to invest in ways which will best position us to serve the modern sports fan and support the success of our business.

John

Give them enough time and they’ll completely self-destruct. I’m sure the 150 people let go are thanking them for a lovely Christmas gift.

Do you suppose anyone left will ever figure out that viewers don’t like being lectured about social justice and leftist politics?

    The liberal left will always destroy any institution they manage to infiltrate.
    Apart from the social preachiness, there are a number of other reasons
    why their enterprises will ultimately fail. Back when all we had were the
    3 major national networks, the CEO’s actually bragged that their news
    divisions were bleeding money because they saw their anchors and
    news writers as engaging in some great public service.

    Fast forward to the modern era. CNN and MSNBC would be bankrupt if
    not for the fact they are being paid by the cable services and not necessarily
    commercial programming. We saw what happened when liberals infiltrated
    the United Way, Target, ESPN, the NFL, etc. A lot of what Ayn Rand called
    “Pull Peddlers” (Lobbyists) paid back the politicians who did them favors
    by appointing them or their family members to corporate boards.

    The one overriding factor with modern liberals is that they are Stalinist
    socialists, not liberals in the classic mold. If you believe that the means
    of production should be in the hands of the government, you are not
    going to give a rats fucking ass about making a profit. This is why all
    of the billions of dollars pResident Ubangi blew on his crony capitalist
    solar donors were looted and went bankrupt within a year.

    This is also why there was never a successful liberal version of Rush
    Limbaugh. The life’s blood of talk radio hosts are sponsors. If you are
    railing against the evils of capitalism 2 or 3 hours a day, you are doomed
    from the start. What the fuck are they going to say? “Capitalists are
    greedy and they oppress the working class. Now a word from our
    sponsors.”
