A far-left news outlet has announced the firing of most of its staff while its CEO tries to dump the company on a larger media organization.
“Mic CEO Chris Altchek announced the layoffs at a staff meeting this morning. Until today the company had employed more than 100 people,” according to Recode.
Altchek is reportedly trying to close a deal to sell the site to Bustle Media Group.
“Mic raised more than $60 million to build a millennial-focused news company but couldn’t find a business model to support its costs, which include a one-floor office in Manhattan’s World Trade Center (an earlier version of this story incorrectly reported the size of Mic’s office),” according to the report.
That’s a lot of money to spend only to find out that millennials don’t read, which someone should have told those poor investors.
The New York Post said that Mic is set to sell for somewhere around $5 million.
Mic was a far left media outlet that had an entire section designated for “Navigating Trump’s America.”
That section of the site included such headlines as “Today in Trump’s America: US fires tear gas at migrants, including children and toddlers.” Mic did not once report about the Obama administration using tear gas at the border, which it did more than 500 times.
Another headline reported that “Betsy DeVos’ predecessor says new Title IX rules will dissuade victims from reporting sexual assault.” DeVos implemented new rules requiring due process for the accused on college campuses, instead of getting trounced on by kangaroo courts implemented by universities.
The site also harangued Trump for partaking in the annual Turkey pardoning event, a White House tradition, with a headline reading “This Week in Politics: A few House midterm races still up in the air as Trump pardons a turkey.”
Bon voyage, Mic!
FAKE NEWS: Media Publishes Disgustingly Mischaracterized Articles on the Death of Kristi Noem’s Grandmother to Attack Her COVID-19 Approach
The fake news media will stoop to any low to attack conservatives.
On Tuesday the Daily Beast published a horrifically misleading story about the death of South Dakota governor Kristi Noem’s grandmother, which was later picked up by sites like Business Insider and MSN.
Daily Beast “Special Correspondent” Michael Daly wrote in a piece titled “Anti-Mask Guv’s Grandmother Died in Nursing Home Ravaged by COVID” that despite the death of Governor Noem’s grandmother, 98-year-old Aldys Arnold, Noem “continues to downplay the virus, refuse a mask mandate, and ignore the terrible price her state is paying.”
Keep in mind that the primary objective here is not to report Arnold’s death, but to lambast Noem’s handling of the COVID-19 pandemic and in a sense blame her for her death.
That is despicable enough in itself, but what makes it worse is that Noem’s grandmother likely didn’t even die from COVID. Daly tells us in the second paragraph of his story that, according to Noem’s office, Arnold tested negative for the virus and that no cause of death was given.
12 out of the 13 deaths at that nursing home between November 14 and November 28 were “COVID-related”—the one exception being Aldys Arnold.
To add fuel to the fire, Business Insider writer Kelly McLaughlin ran her story with the exact same characterization as The Daily Beast’s, with a duplicate version of her article also appearing in MSN.
This is the same fake news media that reluctantly covered—or outright ignored—reports of Democratic governors stuffing COVID patients into nursing homes back in the spring. When we say that the fake news media is the enemy of the people, we wholeheartedly mean it.
