Amidst a week of media attention for being a proponent of tech censorship, “reporters” at Vox walked out of work Thursday, striking in order receive a contract from Vox’s parent company, Vox Media.
“Our unit members are taking their sites dark today to show management how important these issues are to us. Contract now,” Vox’s official union Twitter account said. “The Vox Media Union has walked out today. Here’s what it looks like in the New York office.”

The group is bargaining for competitive wage scales, strong guaranteed raises, better severance, and subcontracting work according to an earlier Tweet. Union members promised not to show up to work until their contract issues are resolved.
The strike is not going so well for some. Reporter Dylan Matthews became enraged when Vox published a story that he wrote, despite the walkout.
“I did not schedule this tweet of my article. Please do not click links from the tweets management is forcing folks out of unit to do while we walk out,” he said.

Vox has been in the news this week primarily for its “reporter” Carlos Maza’s attempt to get right-wing YouTuber Steven Crowder banned from the platform.
Big League Politics reported:
After five days of whining about right-wing YouTuber Steven Crowder’s “offensive” T-shirts, a Vox journalist has goaded the video platform giant into de-monetizing Crowder’s channel until he removes the link for his store.
It started on May 29, when Carloz Maza, a gay Vox “journalist” who runs a newsletter called “Strikethrough” began whining about Crowder’s videos aimed at debunking his newsletters.
The next day, he complained that Crowder was making “overt attacks” against him for his sexual orientation and race. He posted a clearly – in the parlance of our times – doctored video mashup of Crowder using a high-pitched voice to mock him.
“So, I have pretty thick skin when it comes to online harassment, but something has been really bothering me,” he said. Since I started working at Vox, Steven Crowder has been making video after video ‘debunking’ Strikethrough. Every single video has included repeated, overt attacks on my sexual orientation and ethnicity.”
“You’re being given a free pass as a crappy writer because you’re gay,” Crowder said in one of the videos. He also uses the word “queer” in reference to Maza several times.
Maza began lobbying YouTube to remove Crowder’s videos, based on the fact that Crowder is mean and that he sells a shirt which says “Socialism is for F*gs.” (I did not add the asterisk. That is what the shirt says).
Six days of solely focusing on Crowder, and whipping up a mob of left-wingers – including Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) – into a frenzy over Crowder’s content, YouTube finally responded.
Tuesday, YouTube said that Crowder’s videos did not violate their policies.
“Our teams spent the last few days conducting an in-depth review of the videos flagged to us, and while we found language that was clearly hurtful, the videos as posted don’t violate our policies,” the tech giant said in response to Maza.
That message enraged Maza and his supporters, who doubled down on their indignation.
“I don’t know what to say. [YouTube] has decided not to punish Crowder, after he spent two years harassing me for being gay and Latino. I don’t know what to say,” Maza said.

CNN Stands by Fake News Hack Brian Stelter After Allegedly Breaching Confidentiality Agreement
Attorney Lin Wood is calling Stelter out.
Attorney Lin Wood, who has represented former Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann in various defamation suits against prominent media entities, is claiming that CNN hack Brian Stelter violated his confidentiality agreement regarding the case.

CNN is not reprimanding Stelter due to his unprofessional and possibly criminal behavior, showing how the fake news company protects globalist frauds:
I state as a matter of provable fact that Brian Stelter is a liar.
If my statement is false, Brian can now sue me for defamation.
Do it, Brian. TRUTH is my defense.

Big League Politics has reported on how CNN was forced to pay off Sandmann after issuing biased coverage against the student after he was accosted by a gin-soaked Indian outside of the Lincoln Memorial in 2019:
Fake news giant CNN settled the lawsuit filed against them by Covington Catholic student Nick Sandmann today for an undisclosed sum following their biased coverage against the child last year.
Sandmann’s lawsuit sought $800 million from CNN as well as the Washington Post and NBC Universal for their alleged defamation of the student following the boy’s confrontation with far-left Indian activist Nathan Phillips. The cases against the WaPo and NBC are still active.
“This case will be tried not one minute earlier or later than when it is ready,” said Sandmann’s attorney Lin Wood.
Wood also claims that Gannett, the parent company behind the Enquirer, will be slapped with a lawsuit in the days to come. He says that Sandmann continues to suffer from “emotional distress, damage to reputation and distress to his family” as a result of the mistreatment by the fake news.
Last year, the coverage of Sandmann was a galvanizing moment among the Right against the fake news and the liberal hate machine that never hesitates to destroy a young white man’s life over a pack of lies…
Sandmann’s settlement is another stain on the reputation of the fake news, and he may have more payouts to come in the near future. The smear merchants will likely have to pay dearly, as they have overstepped greatly on this hate hoax against a child.
Recently, Jeff Bezos’ Washington Post rag was forced to give a cash settlement to Sandmann as well. The fake news media is finally being compelled to pay for their unethical reporting.
Sandmann is bragging that he is not finished yet in his crusade to bring accountability to media organs that loathe patriotic Americans.
We have settled with WAPO and CNN.
The fight isn’t over. 2 down. 6 to go.
Don’t hold your breath @jack.
— Nicholas Sandmann (@N1ckSandmann) July 24, 2020
“Thanks to my family and millions of you who have stood your ground by supporting me,” Sandmann added. “I still have more to do.”
Sandmann is showing how the fake news media is vulnerable to push back. Even though CNN refuses to fire Stelter, their credibility is hemorrhaging and the market may punish them for providing misinformation for so long.
