No one is spared by woke culture.
Boeing’s communications chief Niel Golightly immediately resigned on July 2, 2020 after an employee complained about an article that the former U.S. military pilot wrote 33 years ago. In the article, he talked about how women should not serve in combat.
Golightly’s departure has Boeing attempting to fill a void in another important role for the fourth time in less than three years.
This comes at a time when Boeing is working to restore its image after the controversial grounding of its Boeing 737 MAX jetliner.
“My article was a 29-year-old Cold War navy pilot’s misguided contribution to a debate that was live at the time,” Golightly recounted in a statement featured in Boeing’s announcement.
“My argument was embarrassingly wrong and offensive. The article is not a reflection of who I am; but nonetheless I have decided that in the interest of the company I will step down,” Golightly stated.
The article in question, published in December 1987, asserted: “At issue is not whether women can fire M-60s, dogfight MiGs, or drive tanks. Introducing women into combat would destroy the exclusively male intangibles of war fighting and the feminine images of what men fight for – peace, home, family.”
In a staff email on July 2, Golightly said that the exclusion of women at the time was “government policy and broadly supported in society. It was also wrong.”
Golightly left his post only after six months on the job. During this period, he was allegedly implementing substantial reforms. The board’s review of an internal anonymous ethics complaint regarding this article is what initiated Golightly’s decision to leave.
In his email, Golightly recounted that he decided to resign following discussions with Boeing Chief Executive Dave Calhoun and other individuals.
America’s military-industrial complex is not even immune from woke culture.
Once the dust settles from current cultural purges, America will never be the same again.
And it’s likely for the worst.
Fox News Ratings Crater, Trailing CNN and MSNBC for First Time in 21 Years
A brutal collapse over the past two-and-a-half months.
Recent data from Nielsen shows that Fox News finished behind both CNN and MSNBC in ratings to open the month of January.
This is the first time in twenty-one years that that has happened, according to Daily Wire.
Nielsen’s ratings data shows that CNN finished number one among cable news networks with approximately 2.8 million viewers per day from January 4 through January 10, including 4.2 million in primetime.
MSNBC came in second with 2.3 million viewers per day and 3.8 million in primetime. And in third was Fox News with 1.7 million viewers per day and 3.2 million in primetime.
This is tough data for the conservative-leaning network. Over the past couple decades Fox has become accustomed to completely dominating the ratings, oftentimes receiving more viewership than CNN and MSNBC combined. Several factors contribute to the fall of Fox, including but not limited to:
- The death of Roger Ailes in 2017 and subsequent changes in network leadership
- Their disastrous Election Night coverage on November 3
- Donald Trump’s loss to Joe Biden
- An ostensible effort to distance themselves from Trump
- A real or perceived softening of their conservatism in general
- Trump’s public irritation with the network, to the point of telling people to migrate over to Newsmax and One America News Network (OANN)
Fox News has recently announced lineup changes as well. This is standard practice in the cable news industry and may not have much to do with their suffering ratings, though there’s a likely possibility that it does. Fox will be adding an hour-long opinion show in place of Martha MacCallum’s news show “The Story,” which had fallen behind both CNN and MSNBC’s 7pm timeslots after a stretch of being “comfortably ahead in ratings.” The network will also shuffle some of their daytime lineup.
As Joe Biden works through his first 100 days as president, it will be interesting to see how Fox News continues to perform, not only in comparison with CNN and MSNBC, but also with OANN and Newsmax.
