Customers of CRTV are unhappy after the company merged with BlazeTV to create BlazeMedia and conservative star Gavin McInnes was dropped from the new lineup.
“Blaze Media no longer has a relationship with Gavin McInnes, and per company policy, cannot comment on personnel matters,” the company said on Twitter.

Many right-wingers reacted harshly to the decision, vowing to cancel their subscriptions to the new service, and blaming Blaze founder Glenn Beck, a bona fide Trump hater, for McInnes’ firing.
“The new Blaze is already going up in flames. Glenn Beck ruins everything he touches,” said conservative YouTube star Mark Dice.
“I have already cancelled due to this terrible decision,” said Twitter user @JamesBrownInc.

McInnes is a controversial figure inasmuch as he founded the Proud Boys, a fraternal group of Trump-supporting nationalists. Blaze dropping McInnes represents the network’s move towards the political center, towards the pre-Trump brand of establishment conservatism which longs for the approval of the political left and will sacrifice conservative principles in order to pass the bad faith tests of its political adversaries.
Michelle Malkin, conservative firebrand and leading figure in the Trump movement, announced her departure from the network shortly after the merger.
“I am so proud of the investigative journalism I did for CRTV,” she said on Twitter. “So many heroes, so many compelling stories. I will not be continuing with the company, but wish my colleagues all the best.”

Former CRTV executive Gaston Mooney, who will serve as co-president of Blaze Media, gave no sign that the network who disassociate with McInnes in the days after the merger.
Left-Wing “Sleeping Giants” Deplatforming Activist Apologizes for “Diminishing” Minority Co-Founder
Matt Rivitz “gaslighted” the co-founder out of Sleeping Giants.
Matt Rivitz, the nominal founder of far-left deplatforming organization Sleeping Giants, issued a detailed public apology to a woman who has recently identified herself as a co-founder of the group. Nandini Jammi went public with her claims of being sidelined as a key figure within Sleeping Giants last week, claiming that Rivitz, a San Francisco ad executive, had “gaslighted” her out of public acknowledgment for her role in the organization.
Rivitz’s public apology, released Monday, appeared to largely vindicate her claims, acknowledging that Jammi was a co-founder of the group who had never received the due credit she claimed to have deserved.

Sleeping Giants is a leftist deplatforming organization that seeks to defund conservative websites by haranguing advertisers over their ad placements on platforms such as Breitbart. Rivitz’s acknowledgment of sidelining the group’s female co-founder- coming only after Jammi published a Medium article that accused Rivitz of erasing her contributions to the group.
“I want to show you how a woman of color almost disappeared from the movement she built, and what you can achieve when you refuse to follow the rules your white male “leader” sets for you,” said Jammi of Rivitz’ selfish desire for self promotion. Jammi also published a series of arrogant remarks she attributes to Rivitz, in which the leftist anti-free speech activist curtly told his younger co-founder to know her place.
Curiously, Sleeping Giants is registered as an LLC in California, making it likely that the deplatforming group is a for-profit entity. Rivitz, who went to great lengths to hide his identity as the figure behind the group, was only exposed as Sleeping Giants’ operator after a Breitbart News investigation. It’s still totally unclear who is funding the organization.
